Recipe: Morning Glory muffins with mint

Dessert recipes with herbs
February 23, 2011

MintI wanted to add some fresh mint to the classic Morning Glory Muffins recipe, and I choose my horsemint, because it doesn't lose its aroma when cooked.

My two years old kid helped me -or, he messed up a bit- and together we use some molds of various shapes instead of my muffin pan, but of course you can prepare them as normal muffins.

This recipe -you can try it with or without mint- is highly recommended: there are many ingredients, and you will taste them all in every bite!
