Zucchini Muffins

This final zucchini muffin recipe is the actual recipe from The Zucchini Cookbook by Paula Simmons. This, too, was a bit on the dry side. However, the book is from 1975 so I'm sure we've changed how we like our muffins over the last thirty something years. This is a sort of struesel muffin (that's what it became called as everyone was determining which muffin was which) with a cinnamon sugar top. I will warn you that the muffins will go bad after a few days if left on the counter.

Zucchini Muffins
2 cups flour
2 teas baking powder
3 TB sugar
1/8 teas ground mace, opt
2 TB butter or margarine
1 cup zucchini, finely grated
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teas cinnamon
1 TB sugar
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and mace. Cut in butter with a fork. Add zucchini, mix. Add egg beaten lightly with milk. Spoon into greased muffin tins. Mix cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle on top of muffins. Bake at 400 for approximately 20 minutes.
