Summer Zuc Muffins

This is summer time and lots of vegetables and flowers are growing healthily in our back and front yard. We pick the sugar snap peas, strawberries and cut the green onions everyday. But the zuchini we have, once in 2 weeks or so. Instead of stir fried them, I used them for the muffins. Gregg is craving for the zuc muffins for few days, sounds like he is pregnant. Hahaha. Enjoy the summer zuc muffins or other fruit you are craving for.

Dry Ingredients:-

1 3/4 cups AP Flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1/2 cup Brown sugar
1/4 cup Granulated sugar

Wet Ingredients:-

3/4 cup Vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup Zuchini shredded
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 eggs


1. Mix well the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl with a hand whisker. Put aside.
2. Mix well the wet ingredients and sugar together in a bigger size bowl with your hand (much easier).
3. Pour the mixed dry ingredients to the wet ingredients (thats why need a bigger bowl) and stir with hands until well mixed (maybe few seconds). You know, always dont overmixed or overstired.
4. Spray pam on the muffins tray (any size you want), pre-heat the oven at 375 F (to be exact).
5. Put the mixture in the muffins tray about 3/4 full so that they have room to puff up when baked.
6. Bake about 15 min or test with your finger, when it is bouncy a little on the top of the muffins, it should be done. Always taste better when little undercook, so that it will be moist and yummy.
