Orange and date muffins

These moist and full-flavoured muffins will fill your house with their aroma during cooking.


Orange and date muffins

  • 2 oranges
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200 g melted butter
  • 1 cup dates, roughly chopped
  • 400 g plain yoghurt (with a little lemon juice added)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Blend the whole oranges in the food processor – skin, seeds, everything! Add the eggs and melted butter (cooled slightly) and quickly whirl the mixture around.
  3. Place this in a large bowl and add the dates. Mix the yoghurt and sugar together in another bowl. Sift the dry ingredients together in a further separate bowl.
  4. Pour the batter into greased muffin pans and bake at 200ºC for 15 to 20 minutes.
