"My three girls love these moist, nut-topped cupcakes even without frosting," remarks Debra Forshee from Stockton, Kansas. "They're a great way to use up zucchini, and they freeze well for a quick snack."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar

"These were great! I added an additional teaspoon of cinnamon. Topped with mini chocolate chips instead of nuts. They were moist & sweet enough with the extra chocolate chips. Best zucchini recipe I have tried yet!"

"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)."

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

"We all loved these cupcakes! Our daughter's school is

nut-free, so rather than using the pecans on top, I sprinkled toffee bits on top before baking. Heavenly!!"

"Without the nuts these are like perfect little moist chocolate cakes, my kids had no idea there was zucchini in them. They are absolutely wonderful!"
