Squash muffin

Thank you very much to those of you, who participated in my second little voting about which type of muffin I should bake for a picnic row this Sunday :-) I really appreciate, that you took the time to and helped me with the decision with in the area of muffin baking.

The result of the vote for which type of muffin, I should bake for the picnic row taking place on the fjord of Vejle was:

Muffin with squash: 5
Muffin with apple: 1
Muffin with chocolate: 5

As you see it was a dead end between squash and chocolate, so as apple got one vote, I decided to go for the vegetable/fruit version.

So your return of investment (= voting without tasting), is that I am sharing the recipe with you, while the picnic row is on-going !!!
