Martha Stewart's Cupcakes Club: Zucchini-Spice Cupcakes
My apologies to the Martha Stewart's Cupcakes Club for the late posting of this month's cupcake selection. I have been called to work this week which meant 14-16 hour work days, reporting at 8AM and not coming home until midnight. I finally got to baking these cupcakes after a short work day (8-hour day).
Got home at 5 o'clock in the afternoon and started baking. I took these pictures before sunset; the cupcakes were still warm so I didn't put frosting on them for the photos. The cupcakes were good with or without frosting. I omitted the nuts, though since I know my kids wouldn't like them.
I had to buy some zucchinis at Trader Joe's for the recipe since my plants got too tired to produce anymore zuchinis. My zucchini plants produced plenty early in the season, now it would produce buds then die out :( I picked out the buds for the photos, my husband cooked them the next day. I didn't get to taste them since I was back at work. I brought over a few of these cupcakes to work and my Brazilian guests loved them!
Thank you to fellow MSC member Tracey of Tracey's Culinary Adventures for this great selection this month. The recipe can be found on page 44 of Martha Stewart's Cupcakes book. Thanks to Sugar Betty for starting this wonderful group, check out the new website to see how the other members' cupcake creations.
