Why is it that nowadays some places have the chutzpah to refer to massive un-frosted cupcakes as "muffins"? Have you stopped by the bakery department of your local Costco lately? You know which ones I'm talking about.
In search of something more to the core of what a muffin should be I was really happy to find this recipe from Cook's Country. I'd never heard of Morning Glory Muffins before but with ingredients that included carrots, coconut, walnuts, apples and pineapples it sounded delicious and healthy to boot. Full disclosure: I'm a sucker for anything with pineapple and coconut!
I made these for Mother's Day breakfast recently and they got the thumbs-up. How could they not? They met all of Mom's requirements: not too sweet, moist and super flavorful.
