These are amazing...
I'm making these again. The ginger was subtle enough to give a gentle warmth and flavour without being overpowering and the dates sometimes make cakes a little heavy. Not here.
Date and Ginger Muffins - suitable for babies on finger foods, toddlers and Mummies (maybe Daddies if there are any left.)
150g Stone free dates chopped finely
140g Self Raising flour (or plain flour and baking powder)
125ml Apple juice
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
Preheat the oven to 200oC / 400F.
Put the dates, flour and ginger into a bowl.
Pour the wet ingredients (juice, oil and egg) into a jug and mix.
Use some oil or spray oil into a mini muffin or cupcake tin (silicon ones are good).
Mix the wet ingredients into the dry; not overmixing.
Put the muffin mix into the tin and bake for 12 mins approx (non fan ovens will take longer). Allow to cool and devour...
I've not tried freezing them yet but if they're anything like my other muffin recipes, they will freeze fantastically. That's if they don't all get eaten.
Oooh these are tasty. I ate 5 (oops). No, they're too good for kids... Oh ok maybe one.
I've linked this lovely old recipe up to the Spice Trail Ginger challenge.
