Zucchine Muffin

Now, when fog has finally knocked Delhi’s door and welcomed by all, yes it may sound untrue but there is something special about Delhi winters.  We all wait for this time of the year.  During this time we enjoy soups,  tea and coffee every now and then and munching all the time without  bothering about our growing pot belly because we know it will hide in long coats or sweaters and these  are the best days to excuse yourself from taking morning walk. But for some it is very harsh health wise, but why to cry on a happy site.  Let’s talk about a best way to start your winter morning after a hot hot cup of tea – Zucchini.

Yes I have been singing zucchini song for long and now when it is in abundance, I can try whatever I want.  With it, I tried zucchini spicy muffin and must say it was worth waiting for this humble vegetable.  They were so tasty, I really recommend zucchini, pumpkin, carrot and beetroot in your cake, in winters you can try them with spices and in summer with chocolate.

I am so happy to see my baking goes healthy.  First,  I successfully started by replacing  plain flour with wheat flour,  by reducing sugar to almost half, then by adding vegetables and fruits and by substituting cream with hung curd, not totally but partially and not to forget without compromising with taste.

My family members also loved my bakes, they find the sugar so perfect and when I tell them about the added advantage they just love to have them.
