  • 1 cup (227g) butter, room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cup (350g) brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup finely grated and drained zucchini, packed
  • 1 1/2 cups butterscotch morsels


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray or use the butter & flour method.

  2. In a large bowl add the butter and brown sugar. Using a hand-held mixer, cream them together until they are lighter and fluffier.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and mix until fully combined, 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl as needed.

  4. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt to the bowl and mix on medium-low until just combined.
  5. Add in the zucchini and mix on low. It should be a runny mixture. If it appears dry at all, let it sit for 5 minutes.
  6. Add in 1 cup of butterscotch morsels and stir with a spatula.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and then top with remaining butterscotch morsels.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes and check for doneness. An inserted toothpick should be removed with a few crumbs on it, but not wet batter. It should appear dark on top and the edges. (This is good!)
