Zucchini Muffins

Are you watching the Great British Bake Off?? I am, and I am having intense cravings for baked goods! These muffins were good, but mine turned out a little dry. Both of my kids liked them (!) and even requested them for breakfast a couple of times! PS: I added walnuts to mine.

Zucchini Muffins
(http://www.simplyrecipes.com)
time needed: 25 min.
makes 12-14 muffins

Ingredients:

3 cups grated fresh zucchini
2/3 cup melted unsalted butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
Pinch salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup walnuts (optional)
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries (optional)

Directions:

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter.
2 In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Stir these dry ingredients into the zucchini mixture. Stir in walnuts, raisins or cranberries if using.
3 Coat each muffin cup in your muffin pan with a little butter or vegetable oil spray. Use a spoon to distribute the muffin dough equally among the cups, filling the cups up completely.
4 Bake on the middle rack until muffins are golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Test with a long toothpick to make sure the center of the muffins are done.
Set on wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from the tin and let cool another 20 minutes.
