“Another delicious way to use the plentiful yellow crookneck squash from your summer garden! These moist muffins are reminiscent of a light fruitcake. They will keep several days in an airtight container. The recipe is from "Sweet and Savory Muffins" and was in a November 1985 issue of Bon Appetit magazine.”
