Quick & Easy Zucchini Slice

Zucchinis are one of those things that when they’re in season, they’re either absolutely overflowing in your vegetable garden or super cheap at the supermarket. Thanks to my husband (and in no part thanks to me… the worlds worst gardener), we usually have a veggie garden that is bursting with zucchinis. They just seem to multiply before your very eyes. Oh and if you forget to check them for a few days (yep, that’s me), suddenly they’re the size of a cricket bat! Anyway, all of these zucchinis can only mean one thing… lots and lots of quick & easy zucchini slice.

Quick & Easy Zucchini Slice

This is my go-to zucchini slice recipe. Sometimes I like to be a bit fancy and add other bits and pieces to my slice, but to be honest, I think this plain and simple version would have to be my fave. That’s always the way isn’t it – the easiest things are usually the best things too.

Quick & Easy Zucchini Slice

So to make my easy zucchini slice, all you need is a few basic ingredients. In fact, most of them you’ll already have at home which saves you an extra trip to the supermarket. Plus, all of the ingredients are really budget-friendly, meaning you can make this slice (and then feel slightly less guilty for buying that winter jacket that you ‘needed’… ahem there’s a chance that may have just been me).

Anyway! The reason I love this recipe so much is that you just chop/grate everything, mix it all together and pop it in the oven. Seriously the prep will take you 10 minutes… which is nothing! That’s like the same amount of time it takes to hang out the washing, clean the shower or do the dishes (ugh – clearly I’m all about the fun jobs today!!).

But no really, if you want a basic and easy zucchini slice recipe that the whole family will love, then this is definitely the recipe for you. If you’re really clever (which you sooooo are), why not make a big double batch and freeze the individual slices for a ‘grab and go’ lunch!

Yumbo! I didn’t know that you could freeze Zucchini Slice – that’s a revelation, and a delicious one at that!

Now this is the kind of savory cakes I like! Sounds tasty! Lucy, what is the dip behind the cake?

My future MIL makes great zucchini slice, and I’ve never managed to get her recipe – thanks Lucy for cracking the secret to a great zucchini slice! I cannot wait to try this (minus the bacon…) for lunches next week!
We don’t garden at the moment, but in our new townhouse I’m hoping to plant a few herbs and some veggies, and maybe a mini fruit tree. And there’s no way my darling IT nerd steps foot in our garden – I’m the sunshine and dirt lover!

Yum! I pretty much make the same recipe for my zucchini slice but I usually add in some grated carrot as well. It’s such an easy and yummy recipe.
