Morning Glory Muffins

These are the best muffins I've ever eaten! Once I took them to a brunch. Three other women had brought muffins, too, but mine disappeared first, and everyone wanted the recipe. Even my husband, who doesn't normally like muffins, just can't seem to get enough of these.—Paddy Webber, Exeter, Ontario
