With the fall weather almost coming to an end, I wanted to bake some comfort muffins and decided to make something I haven’t baked before – Morning Glory muffins! The recipe I tried was highly recommended from my mom and also from my favourite baking book called Butter. The muffins do have raisins, so make sure to warn people before they take a whole muffin! As a lot of people truly hate raisins with a passion. They turned out amazing and were perfect comfort food in this cold weather. Definitely try this recipe, they will no disappoint!! :)
