Date, Apricot and Orange Muffins

They tend to burn on the bottom so cook them in the middle of the oven and keep an eye on them! Recipe by Lynne Perkins


  • 1 whole orange
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2  cup softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 200g pot of apricot yoghurt or any yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup raw sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees fan bake. Grease a muffin tray.
  2. Place whole orange skin and all in a food processor with the dates, egg and butter.
  3. In a separate bowl sift the dry ingredients. Fold the dry ingredients with the liquid ones and then fold in the apricot yoghurt.
  4. Place spoonfuls in the muffin tray, and place a teaspoon of the raw sugar on each one. Bake for 15 mins (maybe slightly less).
