Zucchini Pineapple Muffins

Zucchini Pineapple Muffins

(24 servings)    Printable Version
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups zucchini (about 2 medium zucchini) - grated
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple - drained
  • 1/2 cup nuts - chopped
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherries (optional)
These muffins were great. They were moist, hearty and sweet with occasional bursts of pineapple flavor. My exact cooking time was 28 minutes. I was able to get 22 muffins from the amount of batter produced. I recommend generously greasing your muffin cups and then dusting the bottoms with flour as they did tend to stick a little in the pan. With the help of a paring knife, they all released fine with no damage to the appearance or structure of the muffins. The only change I might make to this recipe in the future would be to increase the baking powder by 1/2 teaspoon to get a better dome shape. Bottom Line: They taste excellent and are especially good warm with a slight spread of butter. (This recipe was submitted in 2003. It was tested and photographed in March 2017.)

Do you drain the pineapple first?
