A courgette (zucchini) muffin recipe!

It’s courgette season! A good excuse to make these delicious muffins… They are yummy — crunchy on the outside, and because of the courgette, lovely and moist inside.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 225 g grated courgette
  • 125 g  sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 125 ml vegetable oil
  • 200 g flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • the grated zest and juice of one lemon

Preheat your oven to 160° C (320° F). In a mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, oil and courgette. In a separate bowl sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Fold the combined dry ingredients into the courgette mixture. Add the lemon zest, juice and salt. Don’t overmix the batter! Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (You can also make a loaf — in that case, cook for about 50 minutes.)

Bon appétit!
