Zucchini CupcakesWe've reached the final installment in our series about how to use the zucchini your garden is producing. Have you run out of zucchini yet? (That was a rhetorical question, silly.) So far I've given you ideas for Zucchini Carpaccio, Fried Zucchini Variations, and Lots of Variations of Zucchini Love. Some people would say we've been saving the best for last, because today it's the ever-popular zucchini bread, zucchini cakes, zucchini cupcakes, and zucchini muffins.

Zucchini bread can be sweet or savory, and both types are found on food blogs. Zucchini cakes and muffins are nearly always sweet, and many seem to be inspired by Chocolate and Zucchini, the blog. It's also clear that lots of zucchini baked goods featured on blogs inspire other variations, which are then featured on other blogs. The recipes seem to reproduce themselves nearly as fast as the zucchini does, but here a few that looked tasty. If you have an interesting recipe for zucchini bread, cake, muffins, or cupcakes, feel free to leave it in the comments.
