Date, Orange and Banana Muffins


1 cup plain flour

1/2 cup of wholemeal flour

2 tsp of baking soda

1/2 tsp bicarb soda

pinch of salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 cup pitted dates, chopped

1 med navel orange – zest and juice

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sour cream

2 med bananas roughly mashed

1 tsp vanilla essence

Extra dates for decoration.

Heat oven to 190 degrees. Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin papers.

In a bowl combine flours, baking soda, bicarb, salt, nutmeg and dates. In another bowl mix together the zest and juice of the orange,  sugar, eggs, sour cream, bananas and vanilla. Fold the wet ingredients into the flour mix using 20 folds of your spoon. Do not overmix if possible as your muffins will be tough.

Quickly fill the muffin cases and place a halved date on top. Bake in the centre of your oven for approx 20 mins or until golden. Cool on wire rack. Makes 12
