Dates muffins

Combination of dates and peanut butter sound exotic for me. I simply had to try recipe for muffins with these ingredients. It comes from this web site.

Ingredients for 18 muffins:
  • 65g soft butter
  • 125g peanut butter
  • 75g brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 375 ml milk
  • 300g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 80g wholemeal flour
  • 130g chopped pitted dates
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds 

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper muffin cases.
In a large bowl beat the butter, peanut butter and sugar together until pale and creamy. Beat in the eggs one in a time. Stir in the soda, baking powder, flours alternating with milk. Gently stir in chopped dates.

Spoon batter into muffin cases using two spoons. Sprinkle top of each muffin with sesame seeds. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until well risen. Remove from baking tin and place on wire rack to cool down. They are very tasty while still warm.
