Breads, Muffins and Scones
These Morning Glory muffins are a big hit here at the Inn. They are extra moist and loaded with raisins, carrots, apples, coconut, pineapple and walnuts. They can be made into gluten free muffins that are almost as good as the standard version by simply substituting your favorite gluten free flour mix for AP flour.
To give the banana bread a yummy banana flavor, I take over ripe bananas and freeze them. When I'm ready to make banana bread I defrost the bananas, which are very gooey but make up into a delicious moist banana bread.
Using coconut milk in these scones makes a great, light scone, but also avoids lactose tolerance issues for your guests. There are as many variations on this same basic scone recipe as you have imagination. One of our guest's favorites is Pina Colada scones - with coconut, dried pineapple and lime glaze.
This is a coffee cake recipe handed down to me by my grandmother. She made it every year when the Episcopal Bishop visited their small church in East Helena, Montana
