Carrot, zucchini & date muffins
« on: January 14, 2018, 10:11:50 am »
Iíve converted this recipe from Best Recipes http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/Carrot-Zucchini-and-Date-Muffins-L3613.html

240g self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp cinnamon
100g light brown sugar
240g pitted dates
340g carrots peeled and cut into 5 cm pieces
150g zucchini, ends removed and cut into 5 cm pieces
125g milk
90g butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius fan forced.  Line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper liners and spray them wth canola oil.  Do the same to a 21 x 11cm loaf tin or if you have 2 muffin trays there will be enough mixture left to fill 6 of them.

Firstly prepare the veggies & dates, there is no need to clean the bowl during any of the following steps.

Chop the carrots for 4 sec/speed 5, remove and place in a medium sized bowl.
Chop the zucchini for 1 sec/speed 6, remove and add to the carrots.
Chop the dates for 6 sec/speed 6, remove and add to the veggies. Make sure there are no stray seeds in the dates, I always find at least 1 in a packet of dates.

Place flour, bicarb and cinnamon into TM bowl and mix for 3 sec/speed 7.

Add sugar, zucchini, carrot & dates to bowl. Knead 10 seconds.

Add milk, butter and eggs to bowl.  Knead 10 seconds.

3/4 fill the muffin tins and tip the remaining mixture into either more muffin holes or a small loaf tin.

Bake the muffins for 17 minutes, remove them from the tin and place on a wire rack to cool completely.

Bake the thin loaf for 22 mins.  You can call these carrot, zucchini & date fingers!

These are really nice when cold, split and spread with butter.

The flavours would be great together Judy. I can just imagine how delicious they are.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

No problems girls, I do very little baking and even less converting these days so it was nice to see if I could still do it!
