When I worked in an office, there was a little bakery down the street that served delicious morning glory muffins. Each one was packed full of raisins, nuts, and other good stuff. They were HUGE, so I only treated myself to one every once in a while, but it was a muffin I will never forget.
Randomly, those morning glory muffins popped into my head. I hadn’t thought about them in years, but suddenly I really wanted one. I had a little fun in the kitchen and came up with my own version. In 10+ years of blogging, this is probably the best muffin I have ever created. In fact, it’s THE most popular recipe on CNC to date. I hope you love this morning glory muffin recipe too!
