These tender, delicious date muffins are made with a hint of orange extract, or feel free to use vanilla extract.

Yield: Makes 12 Muffins


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract or vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, stir before measuring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted


Mix milk and egg together in a mixing bowl; add extract. Sift together the dry ingredients, including sugar. Add to milk and egg mixture; mix until well moistened. Fold in walnuts and dates, then the melted butter, mixing just enough to blend. Bake at 400° for 15 to 18 minutes, or until date muffins are nicely browned. Makes 12 date muffins.
