I found this recipe for hearty muffins in a cookbook I received as a Christmas gift years ago. Now my family often requests that I make these, especially after we go apple-picking in the fall.


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups grated peeled apples
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix oil, eggs and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apples, raisins, coconut, carrots and nuts.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until muffins test done.
