I am serving these today with breakfast here at the Applesauce Inn B&B....zucchini is in abundance right now, the cherries add a nice texture and a little zing!


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup Traverse City Tart cherries
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar for top of muffins (optional)


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Combine the egg, oil, milk, lemon juice and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in zucchini and cherries. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full, top with brown sugar. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.
