MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 8, 2014

Since I didn't have cup cake tins, I made this into a cake.

MY REVIEW

They turn out moist if you leave a bit of moisture in the zucchini before adding to the batter. Left some without nuts and added a few chocolate chips to the top instead. Both ways were great (especially for the non-nut people in my house).

An easy recipe to throw together that turns out tasting wonderful. A great way to use zucchini before it goes bad.

Fantastic! I left out the nuts as my family doesn't care for them and they are great!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 28, 2011

These were very good, but not sweet enough for me. I would consider them more of a muffin then a cupcake.
