Muffins sucrés aux courgettes
Préparation : 15 minutes
Cuisson : 20 minutes
Pour 6 personnes
Ingrédients :

300 g de courgette(s) bien ferme (s)
200 g de farine
125 g de sucre roux
3 œufs
1 /2 sachet de levure chimique
4 cuil à soupe d huile d’olive
1/2 cuil à café de poudre de vanille
1 pincée de sel

Préchauffez le four à 200 °C (th. 5). Mélangez les œufs, le sucre, le sel, la vanille et l’huile. Incorporez la farine et la levure. Râpez les courgettes à la grosse grille, au dessus d’un torchon propre. Faites un ballottin et pressez les courgettes pour retirer le maximum d’eau. Incorporez-les à la pâte. Huilez 6 ramequins individuels (inutile si vous utilisez des moules en silicone). Versez la pâte au 3/4, lissez bien la surface en donnant de petites secousses aux moules et enfournez. Laissez cuire 20 min. Servez tiède ou froid, avec du beurre, du fromage ou de la crème anglaise.

Conseil; pour remplir plus facilement les moules, utilisez une cuiller à boule de glace.

Laissez cuire quelques minutes de plus si vous utilisez des moules plus grands .

oh, so sad! I will not be able to make your French recipe, not only because my high school French is nowhere near adequate for the task, but also because I don't even know what a courgette is. Do you know the translation in English? Zucchini, by chance? It looks delicious!!

These look delicious. Thanks for the recipe, I'm up to my ears in courgettes. Now, what to do with all the tomatoes...

Hi Dreamfarm Girl! They are zucchinis. The English and Irish call them courgettes too :-)

I ate courgette bread in the States once. I had no idea what it was or I probably would not have tried it. But it was delicious.

Hello. I've just found your blog and like it. We have similar interests (except that I'm not very good at photography). I too make courgette and chocolate muffins for my kids when I have a glut. I got my recipe from Barbara Kingsolver's book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle", which I would recommend by the way if you like gardening. Looking forward to following your blog.
