Orange muffins with dates and walnuts

This recipe comes from joy of baking website. They were very easy to make and their taste was delicious. Those muffins were soft, spongy, with beautiful orange scent, sweet with dates and crunchy with walnuts. I think they are worth trying.

Ingredients for 12 muffins:
  • 130g flour
  • 130g whole wheat flour
  • 140g brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bircarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 80 ml orange juice ( I used freshly squized orange juice from 2 oranges)
  • 160 ml buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 57 g melted butter
  • 90g chopped dates
  • 60g chopped walnuts
Wash the orange and grate the zest. Set aside. Squizze orange juice, set aside. Melt the butter and set aside.
Chopp the walnuts and dates and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

In a big bowl sift the flours, sugar, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, salt, orange zest and whisk them together. Set aside.

In a measuring jug whisk together the buttermilk, orange juice, egg, vanilla and melted butter.

Pour this mixture into dry ingredients, add the walnuts and dates. Mix all ingredients together just to combine them all. Do not over stir the batter.
Spoon the batter into baking cases. Bake for 20 min. Transfer to the wire rack to cool them down. Enjoy !
