Inside Out Gluten Free Zucchini Muffins
I choose muffins or cupcakes over loaves and cakes because….
A.) Portion Control.
B.) Easy to hand out and send outside.
C.) Less crumbs on my counters and then onto the floor.
D.) Less kids using knives.
E.) Easier to freeze and store.
Preheat your oven to 350*.
2c. Pamela’s GF Baking Mix
1tsp sea salt
1/2c brown sugar
1/4c white sugar
2c grated and drained (or squeezed) zucchini
1/2c. sour cream
Stir your dry ingredients
Stir your wet ingredients
Now put the wet and dry together.
Spoon into lined muffin trays.
Bake for 22 minutes.
Don’t worry you will not get as many muffins as you see here… I tripled the recipe. You aren’t even seeing them all here… my kitchen is covered in muffins!
Now a word about my ingredients…. The Pamela’s Gluten Free mix is my favorite. I know a lot of Gluten Free folks like their own special blend of “flour” mix…I don’t bake enough to be bothered. We order it through Amazon. The cinnamon I use is a 5% oil cinnamon and is very strong so I don’t use as much as I wrote in the recipe…it would burn everyones lips off. Someone once asked me why, with a family this size, don’t I use a food processor…and the truth is I really don’t need one more noisy thing in this house. Besides, any baking I do is normally while people sleep or nap or I am just trying to be left alone in my own little covert operation.
After my little babycakes cooled I had intended to just stick a piping tip in the top and fill with cream cheese icing….but none of my cake-gear was to be found. So I carved out little circles with a spoon and filled with my icing (or as my grandmother would say, “ice-ning”). I then popped the top back on and waited for the big tribe to come home in an hour.
The rest of the non ice-ninged muffins are going in the freezer.
Think of me when you find the zukes are starting to outnumber you. This recipe will forgive all of your flaws and poor measuring skills.
What are some other ways you use all of the zucchini? Do you grow any in your garden? I would love to hear more in the comments.~T
