It is hard to come up with new and interesting ways to use the zucchini from the garden once they start coming on. This recipe was actually created to mimic carrot cake which I love. I knew that the zucchini would add moistness to this recipe. In fact, as the muffins age, the muffins become more moist. And what could be easier than starting with a devil’s food cake mix?
