A zucchini muffin fit for breakfast or dinner

NEW YORK — This savory muffin studded with zucchini and cheddar cheese pairs as wonderfully with dinner as it does breakfast. And consider taking advantage of all that extra zucchini piling up in the garden by baking a double batch. The moisture from the zucchini means these muffins freeze well.

Want to make a whole-grain version? Substitute regular whole-wheat flour for half of the all-purpose flour. Or go all the way and use white whole-wheat flour in place of all of the all-purpose. White whole-wheat flour has the same nutrition as regular whole wheat, but is made from a lighter grain that produces a flour that tastes and looks similar to white.

ZUCCHINI CHEDDAR MUFFINS

Start to finish: 45 minutes  Servings: 12

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

1 cup packed shredded zucchini

3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Heat the oven to 400 F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners or coat with baking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk, then whisk in the melted butter. Gently fold the liquid mixture into the dry mixture, then fold in the zucchini and cheddar just enough to incorporate.

Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before turning out on a rack to cool completely.

  • Shop your refrigerator, part two: Casseroles

    Last article, we wrote about making soup out of leftover ingredients you have around the house. With this winter giving us one more round of snow early in the month, a hot bowl of soup turned out to be a good way to stay warm while staying home.

  • Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky

    It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.

  • Beat the winter blues with meatballs

    When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
    I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.

    Today’s article is one I have submitted before, but the information in it is worth reading again.
    The food in refrigerators and freezers represents a significant investment. Winter storms can cause power outages that may last from a few hours to several days before electricity can be restored.
