Zucchini basil muffins

We didn’t want anything sweet, but zucchini still was looking sadly at me. So I had to do something. Decided to make these muffins because they looked perfect for a snack. I felt a little bit too much basil, and my hubby sad that he misses ham inside 🙂 But the savory taste was like a hook, so I won”t take long to make them again.

Zucchini basil muffins

Time needed:
Yields: 24 regular size muffins, or 48 mini muffins

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • 2 cups grated zucchini (about 2 medium zucchini)
  • 2 Tbs. finely julienned fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or any other type cheese

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/425°F.
  • Make ready the muffin tins, by buttering them if they are not non-stick.
  • Combine the eggs, milk and oil in a large bowl.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in another bowl and add to the liquid mixture in batches, stirring to blend.
  • Add the zucchini and basil and stir to blend.
  • Fill each muffin cup about 1/2 full.
  • Sprinkle the top with the cheese.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes for regular size muffins, 15-20 minutes for the mini muffins, until the tops are golden brown and puffy.
  • Serve while still warm. You can freeze these and pop them in a toaster oven for a few minutes for a great snack (but didn’t try it yet).

Curd doughnuts

Don’t know why but every day I think about doughnuts 🙂 So then I found some curd in the fridge I knew what to do with it. With the help of Google I found Sonatina doughnuts with curd. They were very tasty. We ate them all in one time 🙂

Cherry cake

Before baking this case, I couldn’t decide – it’s a cake or a pie. But when I baked it no questions were left – it’s really a cake and the good one. Crispy top, tender egg while layer and sour cherries makes very good combination. But if you are afraid of sour cherries, you can use preserved cherries. The next time egg white layer I will make smaller or will use bigger cake form (now I used 24cm). I know, the photos are horrible, but I had to do some photos in a rush, because I try to bake less sweets and the next time this cake will be baked after long time.

Christmas gingerbreads

Yeah, I know… Christmas was last year. But I want to remember this recipe for the future. It’s exclusive because one of the ingredients is sour cream. I didn’t decorate them, because these cookies were for my kids to eat before sleep. And from other side, why I need to decorate them? These cookies are delicious all by them self.

Cheese sticks

I’ve heard a lot of compliments on these sticks. And they were tasted not only by my family, but by a lot of people in my mother’s relatives gathering. From this amount you will bake a lot of cheese sticks, so when I saw it I devided it in halves and the first half was baked the same day for the gathering. The second part was baked next day only for my family. So what can I say… You should really wait and let rest dough in a refrigerator, because next day they were lighter and moister. By the way, I made half with caraway and in another half I omitted it. I liked both variants, so you decide by yourself to use caraway or not.

Buttermilk pancakes

So I get up and go to the kitchen to bake pancakes. Because all kids like pancakes and it’s really easy to bake.
