Zucchini basil muffins


Autorius: Aušra

Data:

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).

Kreminis rabarbarų pyragas

Creamy rhubarb pie

This pie I caked in the beginning of this summer, but still in supermarket I saw rhubarbs, so maybe you still have some at home too. This pie is not very sweet. Next time I think I’ll double sugar in the filling or use less rhubarbs. But anyway, when this pie was cold kids and adults enjoyed it a lot!

Challah

I baked this challah a lot of times, because I just love it. The last time I baked it I prepared the dough and to rise the first time I put it in a fridge for the night. The next morning I took it out, formed challah and let rise it the second time, then baked it. So that morning we had delicious breakfast with still warm challah.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are really good, because they are very moist, not very sweet and of course – they are with chocolate! My kids just love them and at one time ate almost everything (my hubby helped them a little bit 🙂 ). So we agreed that we will repeat very soon.

Zucchini Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Dried Cranberries

A little bit not ordinary cookies. You can’t taste zucchini, just it’s green skin says that cookies has a secret in side. Next time I will use quick cooking oats, because now I used old fashioned and eating cookies I could feel hard oats.

Crepes filled with brinza cheese

Tomorrow is Mardi Gras, and it seems, if I had no kids, I could forget it. But not now, because my kids already said what pancakes I should bake for their school. And as always my mind is busy about ideas what I could make tasty to feed my family. These crepes takes it all – they are very delicious and very satisfying. And everything in preparation is very simple and clear. But every time I prepare them, all just start to fight for them. For me, it gives a lot of pleasure. Since it is very tasty, it is difficult to stop eating them, so I make them not very often but during Mardi Gras you really can treat yourself.
