In Anchorage, Alaska, Anita Sterrett uses carrot cake mix to stir up these moist muffins chock-full of zucchini, nuts and raisins. "They make great snacks and are wonderful for dessert when spread with cream cheese frosting," she notes.


  • 1 package carrot cake mix (regular size)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, applesauce, oil and egg for 30 seconds; beat on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Stir in zucchini, raisins and pecans.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° until a toothpick comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
