yummy garden treat...


My neighbor brought me four zucchini's last week and I have put off what I was going to do with them... well, I decided to make some chocolate chip zucchini pineapple muffins. OH OH oooooooohH!! They were so good!!! I made 6 dozen and froze half of them... they kids have been snacking on them like crazy. Little do they know that it is STUFFED with zucchini!!! I am really horrible at baking, so.. it was fun to make something so tasty.... here is the recipe.

  • 4 cups grated zucchini (approximately 3 medium sized zucchinis)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup fat (butter, margarine or vegetable oil, etc)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • I also added about 6oz. crushed pineapple to make moist
  • and a whole bag of chocolate chips.

Optional

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F.

Grate the zucchini, and measure out four cups. Add to large mixing bowl.

Add eggs, fat, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, vanilla and sugar. Stir together well. Add flour to the mixture, a bit at a time. Stir until all ingrediants are mixed. The mixture should resemble thick pancake batter. If it is to thick, add another egg. Add nuts, if desired. And chocolate, if desired.

Bake for 35 minutes, or until a golden brown.

I made muffins instead of bread... they only needed about 15 minutes to cook....
