Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini-Basil Muffins

2 eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup whole milk
2/3 cup canola oil
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 cups zucchini, shredded
2 tbsp basil, fresh minced
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Zucchini-Basil Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 425.

  2. Muffin tins 22 to 24 cups, buttered or Teflon.

  3. In a large bowl break and beat eggs. Add the milk and oil.

  4. In another bowl measure the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir thoroughly. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, 1 cup at a time, and stir until it becomes a thick, moist batter. It need not be beaten until perfectly smooth-a few lumps are no problem.

  5. Gently stir in zucchini and basil, but only enough to mix well.

  6. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tins, filling each cup halfway.

  7. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top of each muffin.

  8. Place muffin tin in the oven and bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until muffins are a golden brown and the cheese is melted across the tops. Turn a muffin out of the tin and tap the crust to be certain it is hard, not soft.

  9. Allow the muffins to cool about 10 minutes in the tins before turning them onto a metal wire rack.

  10. These freeze well.
