Courgette Muffins

1 Sep

Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday. I made him Courgette muffins as a present (money is tight people!)

DSCN3261 Mum gave me a courgette from the garden to use.

DSCN3259 I used the recipe from Jenna’s blog.


My Dad said he preferred the Carrot Cake Cupcakes I made for Mum’s birthday, but I liked these just as much. The cinnamon and brown sugar topping was pretty amazing!


In other news, I’ve had really bad tooth and jaw pain for the last couple of days and have been up and down to the dentist, an hour away, and have to go back again tomorrow. The dentist still has no idea what’s going on. I’ve been having the pain on and off for nearly two months now. I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself as my sleep is really disturbed and I have work this week which I want to feel fresh for!

On a cheerier note I’m going to Stirling after the dentist tomorrow. I’ll be there till Sunday, I have a few things planned so I’m not sure if I’ll have time to blog but I’ll be back by Monday to catch up on your blogs and let you know what’s been happening! Have a good weekend everyone. XOXO

    Courgette is way more fun than saying zucchini 🙂

    Yum yum yum muffins! I hope your tooth feels better. It’s so horrible and draining when you have toothache x

    Wah, toothache is so horrid.

    I love the courgette muffins though. My mum keeps complaining that she has too many from the allotment – maybe I’ll suggest she gives some to me for muffins 😀

    Hope you feel better soon! I know what you’re going through, I had the worst pain in my mouth for months (on/off) because I had a lot of dental work done and my dentist was not paying enough attention and I was sometimes left with a infection inside the tooth and they had to do some teeth several times 😦 it was a painful time in my life. I really hope they’ll find a fix for you soon!

    Is courgette same as zucchini? 🙂

    Hope your toothache is sorted out soon! Love the courgette muffins. Question, can you taste the courgette in the muffin (as I’ve seen them before and wondered). 🙂

      Hey! No you can’t taste the courgette, the courgette adds moisture but not much flavour! x
