Zucchini Muffins Recipe

Introduction and preparation for baking zucchini muffins

Mix the grated zucchini into the muffin batter to get juicy zucchini muffins. Top with frosting for a variety of cupcakes. Good for coffee and party. Can also be served without frosting.

In addition to frosting, you can spice up the muffins with extra garnish such as walnuts and red currants, raspberries, blueberries or shredded lime peel and yellow marigold leaves; or roasted coconut that you colored light green with caramel color. Or take other chocolate, colored sprinkles or silver sprinkles.

You need 10 medium cupcake molds that you fill with 0.75 dl of butter in each mold. The batter can be doubled if you want to bake more muffins. The batter can also be baked in a mold or bread mold into a whole cake that you top with frosting and cut into squares or pieces.
