Easy Zucchini Slice Muffins
I actually made a batch of the slice and cooked them in patty pans. (This meant that I used a total of 15 eggs!!!) They looked great when they came out, but when the kids tried to eat them, quite a bit of the slice was left behind on the bottom of the patty pan. However they were not a complete disaster. The aim had been to make them for the kids lunches at school. When I was packing them I thought I would try again and peel the patty pan off and they come off quite easily when they are cold.
