Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini Muffins

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 18 muffin cups and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Whisk in oil, vanilla and sugar. Stir in zucchini. Measure flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a sifter and sift the dry ingredients into the zucchini mixture in bowl. Stir just until combined.
Fill prepared muffin tins 3/4 to the top. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until tops of muffins spring back when pressed lightly with your finger. Top of muffins should not look moist. Remove from oven. Run a table knife around each muffin. Allow to cool 5 to 10 minutes in the pan before removing and transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen muffins.
