Tasty Thursday: Squash Muffins

This is one of my favorite fall recipes, and a sneaky way to get your kids to eat vegetables.

Squash Muffins

Ingredients:
2 lbs. yellow squash (about 8 medium)
2 eggs
1 c butter, melted
1 c sugar
3 c all-purpose flour
1 T plus 2 t baking powder
1 t salt

Method:
Wash squash thoroughly; trim off ends.  Cut squash into one inch slices.  Cook in a small amount of boiling water 15 - 20 minutes or until tender.  Drain well, and mash.

Measure enough of the squash to equal 2 cups.  Combine squash, eggs, and butter.  Stir well and set aside.

Comine remaining ingredients in a large bowl; make a well in center of mixture to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

Spoon into greased muffin tins 3/4 full.  Bake @ 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

*The recipe is supposed to make 1 1/2 dozen muffins, but I usually make slightly more, maybe 22 muffins.

  2. Hi pretty RJ! Oh, I don't have any kids at home anymore but I do have me and Mr. Precious and these look so good! I love squash but other than zucchini, I've not had yellow squash in a goodie. I just may have to try this!

  7. Those sound delicious! I love squash, and this is similar to what I'd do with pears or apples for the fall....only it sounds earthier and heartier. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
