MORNING GLORY MUFFINS FOR YOUR EASTER BRUNCH


What a beautiful box!
What's inside is....shall we say.....
glorious! 


Welcome this blessed Easter day by welcoming family and friends 
to a festive and delicious springtime brunch! 


These muffins are SO good! I always baked these muffins for friends when we would have get-togethers and also for coworkers to enjoy a special treat with their morning coffee. They disappeared all too quickly and everyone always asked for the recipe! Even the darling.....who normally does not like raisins or anything with nuts, can't seem to get enough of these! I decided they would be perfect to serve along with that Southern Living breakfast casserole and cheese grits for Easter Sunday brunch! Add fresh fruits and an array of juices and you will have a beautiful start to your morning! 


ESTELLE'S MORNING GLORY MUFFINS
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 t. baking soda
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
3 large eggs
1 cup oil
1 medium apple, peeled, cored and shredded
2 t. vanilla
2 cups grated carrot
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans


In a large mixing bowl. combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the 3 eggs, oil, shredded apple and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients just until well combined. Now carefully fold in the shredded carrots, raisins, coconut and pecans. Fill muffin tin lined with muffin liners, 3/4 inch full.  Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15-18 minutes. We love these served warm!


Save one for the Easter Bunny if you can......
