    In your chocolate zucchini muffin recipe you do not say how much zucchini to use, is it peeled, cooked before, many ?’s left out in recipe.

  • Hi Vicki,

    The recipe specifies to use 3 Cups of grated zucchini. I do not peel or cook the zucchini before using it in the recipe, and that is why the recipe does not specify to do any of those steps.

    This is what I do: Wash the zucchini, trim of the ends, and grate the zucchini on the large holes of a box grater or in a food processor using the shredding blade. Measure 3 cups of zucchini after it has been shredded. I use a volume measuring cup (for liquids), but you could also use standard dry measuring cups, as well.

    If you have any other questions about how to prepare this recipe, please let me know!

    Would you mind telling me the weight of the 2 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour, the 1/4 cup of cocoa and the 3 cups of grated zucchini in oz./gr.? I just want to make this muffins and I want it to be really perfect.

    Thanks for sharing.
