Orange Date Muffins




This recipe has been in my file for years. I have no idea where it came from I only know that is is delicious. Oranges are plentiful, sweet and juicy right now. It is the perfect time to enjoy this brunch delight.
This recipe comes together in minutes using a food processor or Pampered Chef Chopper. Orange, dates and pecans combine to make one delicious muffin.


Orange Date Muffins
Mix together and set aside:
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
In food processor chop 1 whole orange measure 1 cup, if you are lacking a bit add orange juice or milk to fill cup. Add 1/3 cup melted butter and 1 egg. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Bake in greased muffin tins for 14-16 minutes at 400 degrees. Cool and frost with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting.

Yum! I have a loaf recipe that is very similar. Love the sweetness of the dates with the zing of the oranges.
