Recipe by Chef RZ Fan

I found this recipe on a "Texas Cooking" site. We have an abundance of Yellow Summer Squash and I use some of it to make a double batches of these muffins. We like them served warm with honey.

The only change I made to this wonderful moist muffin, was to exchange 1 cup of flour for 1 cup of cornmeal. Therefore, it became a "fornbread" muffin that was great!!! Joan of Arc!
