Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Pineapple Zucchini Muffins

Remember this post about canning "pineapple" from zucchini?  Well, I really need to use all those jars before this year's zucchini starts producing.  Today, I decided to make muffins. 


In case any of you need to use up bottled zucchini, here's the recipe:

"Pineapple" Zucchini Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine:  2-1/2 cups flour, 1 T non-instant milk powder, 2 T brown sugar (you might want to increase this for a sweeter muffin), 1 T baking powder, 1/2 t salt, 1 t cinnamon, and 1/2 c. chopped walnuts.  In another bowl, combine:  1 pint "pineapple" zucchini, 1/4 c. vegetable oil, 1 egg, and 1/2 c. water. 


(If you prefer, you can use 1/2 cup milk rather than the powdered milk and water.)

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir to combine.  Either grease muffin tins, or use paper liners.  Fill muffin tins 3/4 way full, and bake for 18 minutes.  Makes 15 muffins.

Thankful thought:  Thanks for the smell of freshly-baked muffins!

  1. I don't have any pineapple zucchini, a rather specialized ingredient you must admit, so I'm thinking straight up crushed pineapple will fill the bill. I'll try and let you know.

    1. I'm all for making substitutions in recipes. I bet crushed pineapple will work just fine!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
