I have had a couple of icky days. Well icky for me. I have a million things in my brain to do and I just don't feel like doing any of them. I know it's a bit of the "blues" but I don't have a real reason for it. All I want to do is watch good scary movies, and sleep, and that's exactly what I did yesterday. Today though, I forced my self to do things. Part of that was baking these squash carrot spice muffins. Yes, with fresh squash and carrots from my garden. I used a basic recipe for muffins then added the goodies. OMG!!!!! they are so moist and delish.
2/3C vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1/2 cup brown and granulated sugar.
1/2t each backing soda, baking powder and salt
2t cinnamon (I always use more)
1 1/2 cup finely grated unpeeled zucchini or other summer squashes. I used a hybrid and crook neck. Squeeze out any liquid and pat dry.
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot. Pat dry.
preheat oven to 375° F. Line a muffin pan.
In a medium bowl, mix oil, eggs, both sugars and vanilla.
In a larger bowl mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Add the wet to the dry and mix until combined. Don't over stir. Add carrots and squash. Then spoon into the muffin pan. Bake about 20 minutes every oven is different so check with a toothpick to make sure they are done.
Really no need for a topping they are sweet and moist.
Let me know if you try this recipe.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
