1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin pan with 12 paper liners. Trim the ends off the zucchini and grate them coarsely. Grate the cheese.

2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Stir in the sugar, salt, and pepper with a metal spoon until they are thoroughly combined.

4. In a pitcher, whisk the eggs, milk, and butter with a fork or whisk. Pour them into the large mixing bowl and stir until just combined. The batter should be lumpy.

5. Using the metal spoon, divide the mixture equally among the 12 paper liners and sprinkle each one with the remaining grated cheese.

6. Place the muffins in the center of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until risen, golden, and firm. Let cool on a cooling rack before serving them warm or cold.
