Sunrise Muffins

... woke up ridiculously early this morning, especially after last nights debauched slugging, so I made these babies to fill the house with the smog of baking goodness and gently wake everyone else up...

this recipe comes from Jason Schiller, pastry chef at Macarthur Place in Sonoma CA and they are good...

recipe (don't ask me about cup conversions, they all differ depending on dry or liquid... I just chose a cup and stuck with it...)

1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp cinnamon (I thought this was way too much so I did 3 tsp... perhaps it's a misprint?)
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1 tsp allspice

4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 oil (I used sunflower)
1/4 cup dark corn syrup (I used golden syrup)

1 lb grated carrot
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup grated apple
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Sift together the dry ingredients, set aside

beat together the liquid ingredients and sugar until just evenly mixed

add the dry to the liquid and mix till just combined

add the remaining ingredients and mix till just combined

fills 24 muffin cases and bake at 350 for 20 mins

They were very good and felt wonderfully summery and healthy even... great cure for hangovers following a couple of fried eggs on toast!

eat and of course, enjoy!
