Yellow Squash Muffins
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
Yum! I used my blender on the squash (seeds and all) and added cinnamon and nutmeg. Delicious!
LOVE THEM!!! These muffins ate great and a fantastic way to use squash out of the garden. Also, a great way to hide the squash for finicky eaters. I did add cinnamon to the dry mixture and folded in some chocolate chips. I will definitely make again.
Very moist thought they'd rise more, but overall it was tasty. First time I ever used squash this way. Will make again
This is a great tasting and very simple recipe, and good to use up some summer yellow squash from the garden! I made it 3 times. The third time I added a pinch of cinnamon. Next time I'll add 2 pinches. I used gluten-free flour. I peeled the squash, diced it, cooked it like it says. That way there are some tiny chunks in the muffin. I could try pureed squash, but I like the soft chunks. I think I'll try adding chopped walnuts next time.
What a very tasty and easy Recipe. You do not need to peel your Yellow Summer Squash. You should us a Stick Blender and Puree the Squash (then add in the Melted Butter and the Beaten Egg). I chopped, and cooked, up 3 Medium Squash and ended up with 7 cups of Pureed Squash. Enough for 3 Batches and an Extra Cup for Eating later. I used Whole Wheat Enriched Pastry Flour, to get more Fiber,, and I sprinkled Nutmeg and Cinnamon on Top. 22 Minutes to Yumminess!
My family love these. The recipe was simple and quick to make. Another reviewer suggested about 2 cups and that is right for this recipe also pureeing the squash is also a great ideal. It was smooth and the muffins taste like cup cakes. I added about 2 tblsp of honey. The ones , in my family who does not like squash never knew it was made with it until I told them. This is a keeper high scores.
My husband and I loved them! The recipe has simple ingredients. The only thing the recipe didn't tell was whether to peel the squash first ( I did anyway.). The muffins even lasted several days without getting soggy. I'm making them again this week when my sister visits.
I think this recipe is simple and wonderful. Another reviewer rated it low because they put in too much squash. I looked it up, you should have about 2 cups mashed squash. I pureed mine with a hand held blender to make them smoother. My hubby does not like squash either but I think he'll like these (without the chunks). I was delighted at the texture and flavor! I am also struggling not to eat them all today!
These didn't turn out as well as I had hoped but I think I had too much squash. I did use 1# as the recipe directed. Has anyone measured out how much mashed squash should be used? The flavor was very good.
So very delicious!!!
