Zucchini Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Since my kids won’t eat zucchini, it’s nice to have other options for using it. I came across this recipe a few years ago, and I really like it. It’s more like a muffin, really, but the cream cheese frosting makes it irresistible to the kids (and of course I either have to leave out the nuts or grind them in a food processor so the kids don’t detect them). These cupcakes are another great way to use some of that summer squash.

Note: These are also really great filled. Rather than spreading the frosting on top, take a melon baller and scoop out a ball of cake from the underside of cupcake. Pipe in some frosting using a sandwich baggie (snip off a corner and squeeze the frosting through the hole) or a pastry bag, and then replace the ball of cake to hide the frosting. It’s, of course, a great surprise.
