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.

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

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.

  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!
