Lemon Glazed Zucchini Muffins

If you read the post about my Farmer’s Market finds you saw those two gigantic zucchini’s that I bought this weekend.  I didn’t want them to go bad so I put them in the food processor and ended up with 5 quarts of shredded zucchini!  Holy cow!  What am I going to do with all that?  I thumbed through a cookbook that my friend  Becca gave to me for Christmas many years ago.  I came across this recipe and had to try it.  Since I had so much zucchini I decided to double the recipe.

Lemon Glazed Zucchini Muffins

source: Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook


2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 TB Baking powder

1tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

2 tsp grated lemon zest

3/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts ( I used pecans)

1/2 cup dried fruit bits or golden raisins ( I used craisins)

1/2 cup milk

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 cup zucchini, shredded, packed into cup, not drained

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 to 3 teaspoons lemon juice


1. Preheat oven to 400 F.   Grease well or paper-line 12 muffin cups.

2.  In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and lemon peel.

3.  Stir in nuts and fruit.

4.  In a small bowl, combine milk, oil and eggs until blended.

5.  Pour into flour mixture; add zucchini, stirring just until moistened.

6.  Spoon into muffin cups.

7.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove from pan.

8.  In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth.  Drizzle over warm muffins.

Yield 12 muffins.



  1. Yummy these look good! If you are looking for another way to use up some of that squash, you could always make veggie pancakes. I just made the recipe from Eggs On Sunday. Soo good!

  3. These look great and I wouldn’t have thought of combining lemon and zucchini in baked goods!
