Fruity Nutty Zucchini Muffins

This recipe is a combination of a few different muffin and cake recipes, resulting in a very sweet, moist, and dense dessert-type muffin. I really like the mix of textures and flavors, and those who tried them have all said it reminds them of carrot cake. These are VERY sweet, so use your own judgement and cut back a bit on the sugar if you want (definitely do so if you use anything other than juice-packed or light syrup fruit cocktail). I used a yellow summer squash, and the yellow color was so pretty in this. Because of their high moisture content, keep these refrigerated for the best texture and "shelf" life.
