err girls, what is zucchini? is it a kind of pickle or cucumber look alike?

I saw a Muffin recipe that use Zucchini once at Buay's home(her 1001 Muffin book). copy down the recipe but never try.

Zucchini looks like Japanese cucumber. Usually, quite thin and long with dark green skin. And frankly speaking, unless labelled, I can't differentiate these two.

Hi

If I don't want to bake Zucchini, can I peel off Zucchini skin and slice/shred it up and stir fry like Hairy Gourd(Mao Gua) with minced meat and Dong Fen?

Thks

Have time on my hands today and thought I'd go thru some old threads to see if I can pick up any good tips or recipes. Came across this zuchinni post and thought I'd share a wonderful zuchinni cake recipe that I (and many of my friends) love - it is soft and moist and really yummy. I have been meaning to test the recipe using carrots instead, still on my to do list. Also recently tasted the loveliest pickled zucchini in a Korean restaurant and am now searching the web for that recipe...

And to the question posted by dianaheng01, yes, I use zucchini to replace the hairy gourd in that stirfry vege dish that uses dongfen and minced meat (or sometimes I use dried prawns).

I don't think this vege is readily available in Asia, I've never seen it in the markets that I've visited but if you do come across it, get some, it is really nice. Here's more info and pics on this vege (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zucchini).

ZUCCHINI CAKE
? 4 eggs
? 1 ? cups white sugar
? ? cup vegetable oil
? 2 cups plain flour (known as plain flour in Aust)
? 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
? 1 teaspoon salt
? 2 teaspoons baking powder
? 1 teaspoon baking soda
? 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
? 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
? 2 cups grated zucchini (1 big sized zucchini gave abt 2 ? cups)
? 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Frosting / Glaze (optional ? I don?t usually do frosting as I find it too sweet)
? 1 cup icing sugar sugar
? 2 tablespoons milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a ring or loaf pan.
2. Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
3. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until light colored. Mix in oil. Add sifted ingredients to egg mixture, and beat for 2 minutes. Stir in pineapple, chopped nuts, vanilla, and zucchini. Mix thoroughly. Pour batter into prepared pan.
4. Bake for 80 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool for at least 5 minutes in pan before removing cake to cool on cake rack.
5. To Make Glaze: In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar and the milk. When cake has cooled, pour glaze over cake.
