- 300 g zucchini
- 2 cups 00 flour
- 3 eggs
- 100 g cheese
- ½ cup grated Parmesan
- 1 cup milk
- ¼ cup seed oil
- 10 g instant yeast
- 2 teaspoons salt
First of all, start with the zucchini.
Remove the two ends, wash and then grate them using a large grater. Squeeze the zucchini strips thus obtained with a cloth or a towel so that they lose all the vegetation liquid, which otherwise would make your muffins too wet.
In a bowl, add all the liquid ingredients, which are milk, oil and eggs. Separately, add dry ingredients: flour, yeast previously sifted, Parmesan cheese and salt.
Whisk and add the zucchini after having carefully squeezed them. Mix and gradually add to this mixture the dry ingredients mixed together just before.
When you have obtained a perfectly homogeneous mixture, transfer it into special cups placed inside muffin molds. Fill the cups for about 3/4 of their capacity. Remember that your savory muffins will rise in the oven, then increase in volume, even if only slightly.
Add a first part of the mixture inside the cup, add the cheese cubes, and cover with the other dough always stopping at 3/4 of capacity. At this point, place your savory muffins in a preheated oven at 350°F for approximately 35 minutes or until they are golden brown on the surface.
Once ready leave them to cool for about ten minutes at most and serve hot so you can appreciate the streamlined interior.
Store the zucchini cheese savory muffins for about a couple of days in an airtight container covered with cling film.
Before serving, heat them again in the oven or microwave.
