Today I got together the ingredients for an Autumn Muffin.
Combine a carrot cake mix with four eggs.Chop into very fine pieces, raw peeled carrots, and add to mix.
Peel and core two large apples.
Chop into much smaller pieces.
Add 1/2 cup of water.
Add 1/2 cup canola oil.
Add 1/2 cup raisins.Mix in 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon nutmeg to batter.
Chop 1/2 cup pecans, and save 24 pecan halves for tops of muffins.
Blend very well. This mixing stick is wonderful, for that job.
Spoon mixture into muffin cups and top each one with a pecan half.Place in the oven. I baked these muffins at 350 degrees. Since I was experimenting it took quite a while for these muffins to bake, maybe 45 minutes. They were loaded with wet & raw ingredients so it took a long time before I thought they were cooked through and through.
These are wonderful for breakfast, or in the afternoon with tea.
