"Great recipe! Note variations in current smaller cake mix size and adjust zucchini amount accordingly. Very versatile recipe, easy change cake mix flavors- spice cake works beautifully as well. Moist, tastes-like-homemade muffins bake perfect every time! As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine, I love recipes that can be adapted easily to my family!"

"Beware of cake mix size - Betty Crocker is only 15.25 oz so that's 15% less than what you need. I skimped on the rest of the ingredients so as not to end up with an overly moist batter. Definately add grated peel from an orange too - it makes the recipe! We loved them."

"I didn't have any oranges so i omitted the orange zest, but otherwise followed the recipe. Absolutely delicious! The whole family loves them and I love that they have some healthy veggies in there. Perfect to grab for a quick breakfast."
