Morning Glory Muffins

These are wonderful for breakfast and a favorite around here.  They are a lot of work but worth it.

Morning Glory Muffins

2 1/2 cups sugar
4 cups flour
4 tsp. cinnamon
4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup raisins, plumped in brandy or apple juice and drained
1 cup coconut, shredded
4 cups shredded carrots
2 apples, shredded
1 cup chopped pecans
6 eggs
2 cups vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl.  Lightly dust the raisins with flour.  Add the coconut, fruit and nuts; stir well.  Add the eggs, oil and vanilla, stirring only until combined.

Spoon batter into muffin tins and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.  Muffins should "ripen" for 24 hours for maximum blending of flavors.
