Ya, I should have gotten me arse to the store for a shopping but with the heat and humidity and me being 8 months pregnant with our very active child, I kept putting it off. Something to do with feeling wiped out and having feet that hurt and not getting a good night's rest in the past several weeks... I dunno. ::snickers::
So yes, here we have an AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS and wonderful zuchinni muffin recipe that I threw together - except the extra fun part is this is a poor girl's special! I googled substitutes for nearly everything I would have needed to make this right... well not nearly everything- but most of things we were out of...
No milk- no problem - don't need any!
No eggs- no problem - I googled egg substitute and found out I could use those two over ripe bananas for 2 eggs. I also found out I could substitute 2 tablespoons of corn starch per egg... so that's what I did! Instead of using 4 eggs for this recipe I used 2 bananas and 4 tablespoons of cornstarch. Eggs = done.
No brown sugar - no big whoop- I used a cup of white sugar with my dry stuff and added two tablespoons of molasses to the wet stuff = brown sugar. Done!
No vegeteable oil- nobody cares - I used a cup of olive oil and a half cup of canola oil - good as new. Oil = done!
I was also out of Crisco and Pam (either of which I would have used to grease my muffin tin) So I took a stick of butter wrapped in butter paper and smeared that around the tin to grease it up. Bingo. It worked!
- 3 cups sprouted flour (or plain if you have it)
- 2 cups brown sugar (or make your own like I did)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Cinnamon to taste ( a few sprinkles maybe a table spoon?)
- 4 eggs (or substitute like I did)
- 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
- Splash o vanilla extract
- 3 zuchinnis grated by hand or in processor whatever works for you
- lots of raisins (a cup or so)
- some walnuts (a half cup or whatever you want)
To really sweeten the deal - I made a crumble topping from 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 sugar, 1 stick of butter cubed and food processor the whole thing until you get a crumble. Spoon on top of muffins before baking. Delish! Oh and yes- they are the magical muffin to get you going in the morning- Here we go go go!
