The zucchini are in season and I have a recipe for you that everyone will love. Thanks for tuning in today for this Lemon Zucchini Muffin Recipe, today on Ranch Raised!
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup canola oil
2 T lemon juice
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
15 drops lemon essential oil (in place of lemon zest)
1-2 cups of grated zucchini depending on how much you like and how wet your zucchini is.
You can also add a cup of blueberries from a yummy blueberry lemon flavor combo!
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray muffin pan with a non stick spray.
2. Mix dry ingredients.
3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs. Add oil and sugar and blend well. Add lemon juice, milk, and lemon essential oil. Fold in zucchini.
4. Add dry mix to wet ingredients and fold until combined.
5. Pour batter into muffin tins or loaf pans.
6. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until a toothpick pulls out clean.
These make great freezer muffins that kids can pull out on busy school mornings!
Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.
Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.
You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.
