I got this recipe from the book "Cook yourself thin" by Kumai, Eastwood and Fishman. If you have picky eaters, you can peel the zucchini first so they don't know it's there. There's a frosting recipe, but I don't like frosting so I eat them like this :-)

Recipe Ingredients for vanilla cupcakes

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cups ground almond (finely ground)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups zucchini, finely grated

Recipe Directions for vanilla cupcakes

  1. Whisk together flour, almonds and baking powder. Set aside.

  2. In another bowl, beat eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla with a mixer about 4 minutes. Beat in zucchini on low speed.

  3. Add the dry ingredients unti lfully incorporated. Use 1/3 cup measure to spoon into muffin cups.

  4. Bake about 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely. Ice with chilled frosting (if you want to)
