But Saturday mornings. And Summertime. Just seem to scream slow. With a spot reserved outside on our patio. And muffins. Or pancakes. Or even cereal. And coffee. Always coffee.
And there is always knitting, too. I cast on for a sock this morning.
Glorious Morning Muffins
2 cups of flour :: 1 1/4 cup sugar :: 2 tsp baking soda :: 2 tsp cinnamon :: 1/2 tsp salt :: 2 cups grated carrots :: 1/2 cup chopped pecans :: 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut :: 1 apple, peeled, cored and grated :: 3 large eggs :: 1 cup vegetable oil :: 2 tsp vanilla.
Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir in carrots, pecans, coconut and apple. In another bowl, beat eggs with vegetable oil ad vanilla and stir the mixture into the flour mixture until the batter is just combined. Spoon batter into well greased muffin pan. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
We love these muffins. But don't do what I did this morning. I forgot to put in the baking soda. They were a bit like hockey pucks, and ended up in the garbage. But that is alright, because it is Saturday.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone.
