Zucchini Muffins

This week I took the zucchini challenge and brought in 3 good-sized zucchini, which made 6+ cups shredded. 3 cups went to the recipe below and the remaining 3-4 cups went into the zucchini pizza crust posted earlier. Everything was eaten up! Don’t let the addition of cocoa throw you off from the breakfast value of these muffins, but feel free to leave it out.

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini zucchini muffins
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla (a Julia Child measurement ;) )
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup baker’s cocoa

Preheat oven 350. In large bowl combine sugar, eggs, vanilla; stir in grated zucchini and melted butter. In separate bowl, toss all the dry ingredients together and then stir them into the zucchini mixture. If you want to ruin them with chopped walnuts (per my Mother’s suggestion), this would be the time to add them, or your dried cranberries, or choco chips…

Grease your muffin tins and distribute the batter among the cups. This filled 16 muffin cups full. I probably could have filled them a smidge more and made 14 muffins. Bake 25 minutes or until the tops bounce back, toothpick comes out clean – however you test your cake for done-ness.

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. His daughter, Kate, bought her own farm, The Turkey Farm, where she raises animals for meat production and works many of the farmers' markets. His son Curtis is is developing an orchard at the Lunenburg farm and recently bought a farm near his sister in Hardwick. The farms also have several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!
