Whole Orange and Date Muffins

I have never been able to eat breakfast, but tasting these muffins have convinced me that I might just be a brunch person!

Makes about ten muffins, depending on the size of your tins.

1 orange

125ml orange juice

190ml pitted dates, roughly chopped

1 egg

125ml butter, melted

375ml cake flour

5ml bicarbonate of soda

5ml baking powder

2ml salt

190ml sugar

125ml pecan nuts, roughly chopped

Preheat your oven to 180℃.

Line a muffin tin with paper cups and spray lightly.

Cut the orange into smaller pieces, leaving on the skin. Remove any seeds that you can see.

Add the orange pieces and orange juice to the bowl of a food processor and blitz until finely chopped.

Add the dates, egg and melted butter and mix.

Now mix together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl.

Add half the flour mixture to the bowl of the food processor and incorporate into the orange mixture. Add the rest of the flour mixture and incorporate until well mixed.

Stir in the chopped nuts.

Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, filling each muffin hole about two-thirds.

Bake for 20 minutes.

The muffins do taste best when cooled completely.
