Morning Glory Muffins

This recipe comes from Muffin Mania Cookbook by Cathy Prange and Joan Pauli. I really like this book I have made many recipes from it over the years. The one I linked to is a different cover than mine which is from the 1980's but it appears to be the same book. I would recommend to buy this cookbook.

Morning Glory Muffins


2 cups unbleached flour
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

2 cups grated carrot
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup toasted nuts of choice
1/2 cup coconut
1 apple, peeled, cored and grated

3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350ยบ.

In large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Whisk together.

In medium size bowl combine:

carrots, raisins, nuts, coconut and apple.
Stir to combine.
Stir into flour mixture.

In small bowl combine eggs, oil and vanilla.
Whisk together.
Add to flour and fruit mixture and combine until just mixed together.

Spoon into prepared muffin tin evenly.

Bake for 20 minutes.
Makes 14 large muffins.

this looks like the perfect morning muffin. the ingredients remind me of carrot cake which is a favorite of mine. I will have to give these beauties a try.
