Steve, my farmer friend, has kept me well supplied with zucchini. I was looking to make an original muffin recipe to thank him that would knock his socks off.

Ingredients

Topping:

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • ½ cup margarine, softened

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup grated zucchini

  • 1 cup cranberries

  • ½ cup walnut pieces

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with liners.

  2. Mix 6 tablespoons flour and brown sugar together in a bowl for topping; cut butter into the flour mixture until you have pea-sized crumbs. Set aside.

  3. Beat margarine and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat egg and vanilla into the butter mixture.

  4. Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into the butter mixture. Fold zucchini, cranberries, and walnuts into the mixture; spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling nearly to the top. Sprinkle reserved topping mixture onto the batter.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
