    Chef RZ Fan's Note:

    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.

      These were easy and delicious! The flavor was very mild, so I'd suggest either planning for a strong spread/topping, or tossing in some extras as you bake. A great way to use your squash!

      Was looking for a way to use up a lot of yellow squash and these lowfat muffins were great served with dinner. Good texture and yummy served with honey, but the flavor is very plain. Are probably better suited to breakfast served with sweet toppings. For dinner, I'd add some herbs, maybe garlic. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      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!
