Morning Glories? Yes, u heard me correctly, and most probably the first thought that would come to your mind would be "isn't that a flower?" That was what came to my mind too, the simple but pretty flower that comes in striking shades of pink, blue and purple. Until I got to know that there's a muffin that is known as Morning Glory muffins too. when I came across them here while looking for something quick and easy plus healthy for breakfast. Looking at the list of ingredients,having one of them for breakfast would indeed make a glorious start to any mornings. Wonder if that's how it got its name. Strangely I couldn't find much about its origin (how it got its name and where did the recipe came from) although it is quite popular.
Made some variations (used whatever I had in my kitchen).
- Shredded coconuts ~ nutmeg strips
- walnuts ~ Almonds
- Whole wheat flour ~ Cake Flour
- 1 cup sugar ~ 3/4 cup
- Wheat germ and Sunflower Seed instead of Wheat germ or Sunflower Seed
Verdict?? Glorious Indeed! It's a pity I was too lazy to use an ice-cream scoop to scoop the batter into the cases, so it's a rather flat top :(
