    These muffins incorporate a whole orange into the mix - everything but the seeds! They taste amazing with dates, cloves and ginger flavours on top of the orange.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 1 thin skinned orange, cut into eighths and seeded
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 cup (250ml) buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup pitted dates, diced
    • 125g butter
    • 1 3/4 cups (220g) plain flour
    • 3/4 cup (185g) white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:1hour cooling  ›  Ready in:1hour35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Grease muffin cups or line with patty cups / muffin cases.
    2. Place orange pieces into the blender with the egg, buttermilk, dates and butter. Blend thoroughly until mixture is thick, fairly smooth with flecks. Pour out into a large mixing bowl.
    3. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, sugar, bicarb soda, baking powder, salt, cloves and ginger. Combine flour mixture with the orange mixture and stir or fold gently with a wooden spoon or spatula; only until dry ingredients have combined. Don't mind any lumps that may be present. Fill muffin tins to just under rims with batter.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into centre of muffin comes out clean. Let stand in pan for five minutes, then remove to wire racks for cooling.

    This is a great quick recipe that is moist and sweet. The little bits of orange skin become soft and chewy. Ideal if you need to whip something up quickly. - 20 Apr 2010
