Yummy Apple, Spice And Date Muffins!

Today we made these lovely muffins. We were looking for something to have as a snack and my mom came upon this recipe. They were so yummy! I have given the recipe below if you would like to make muffins. You can make them either with dates or prunes - you decide!

Apple, Spice and Date Muffins:

Makes about: 6 muffins.
Baking time: 15-20 minutes


half a cup wholewheat flour
half a teaspoon baking powder
half a cup white self-raising flour
half a teaspoon ground all-spice
1 third of a cup soft, brown sugar
1 quarter of a cup chopped prunes or dates
80 g butter, soft
1 egg, lightly beaten
140 g apple puree (we steamed and mashed our own)

  1. Preheat oven to moderate 180 deg. Grease muffin pan with butter and sprinkle with flour.
  2. Sift flours and spice into a medium mixing bowl. Add sugar and chopped prunes or dates.
  3. Make a hole in the centre. Add combined butter, apple and egg. Stir until mixture is smooth, but do not overbeat.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden. Serve muffins warm or cold. Store in an airtight container for up to two days (ours don't last that long!)

Do not over- beat muffins or they will be tough. Stir until just combined.
We always double our recipe at least, as one is definately not enough!
