Recipe by Impera_Magna
Served at the members club dining room at Pinehurst, these are absolutely delicious. I found the recipe in a locally-published resort-affliated magazine and made sure I didn't lose it! Very good and worth the effort... EDITED to say: This muffin is like some fruit cakes where there seems to be mostly fruit and very little cake; there is just enough batter to hold the nuts, coconut, raisins, apples, & carrots together. Feel free to experiment to make them suit you and your family!
