Zucchini Cupcakes

These Zucchini Cupcakes are gluten-free and the recipe is very easy to follow. They are very moist and keep well.

You can substitute grated carrot for the zucchini and swap walnuts for sultanas if you wish.

Before measuring, you need to squeeze the grated zucchini until dry. I always squeeze in a clean tea-towel or paper towel.

This is a rather dense cupcake but it is really delicious. You will discover that one almond and orange cupcake is never enough!

This gluten-free cupcake recipe has become a favorite in my house. I hope you enjoy it as well.
