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).

Buns with bacon

We don’t eat smoked bacon with onions and bread often, just sometimes 🙂 But after visiting family in farm we got a big cut of smoked bacon. So I baked buns with bacon. I just love them, but my hubby don’t. Anyway, I baked and froze a lot of buns, so now I have snack or breakfast for a long time:)

Pumpkin cutout cookies

I thought to bake these cookies for a long time, but… And one day I took the cup of pumpkin purée from the freezer and used only a half. So the day of that cookies has come 🙂 I rolled those cookies very thinly because I like thin cookies 🙂 Happy that I halved the recipe because I made a lot of cookies, really a lot. I give you the halved recipe.

Swirled pumpkin cream cheese cake

It looks like simple ordinary pumpkin cake, but special taste gives cream cheese. It takes cake to another level 🙂

Cabbage and minced meat bake

Rather healthy and satisfying dish for cabbage lovers. My family liked it a lot, but I have to warn you – from the portions in the recipe you will make a lot of it. So if you want just to try it – make from half of the recipe.

Minced meat and feta bake

I think this is the last recipe with pasta for some time. Now I’ll take a break from pasta because now we eat a lot of salads, barbecued meat and everything we find in the freezer. Of course when autumn will be near, we gonna need warming and satisfying food, so pasta will be back. Some words about the recipe. It’s satisfying and good, and simple. Unfortunately I had only one third of cheese, but it didn’t ruined the taste.
