When we lived in Brantford we used to buy un-pasturized honey from a local beekeeper. One day she randomly gave me a cookbook, the "Ontario Honey Recipe Book", and I went home and tried a few of the recipes right away.
Honey lends an unexpected flavour to foods, and I enjoyed using it. One of my favourite recipes though was this Date Orange Muffin recipe. I hadn't made these in a long time though, but want to try them again, only changing a few things to suit us now. They are gluten free, dairy free, and using half honey, half maple syrup (because my neighbour stopped by with syrup he had made!). The result was fantastic, and these muffins were as good as I remembered.
Date Orange Muffins
Adapted from the "Ontario Honey Recipe Book"
*If you don't have walnut meal, just make up the difference with more almond meal.
* *If you are not gluten free, the original recipe calls for 3/4 cup of honey (I reduced the amount to suit us/the type of flours I was using), and 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour.
A whole, fresh orange gives these muffins an incredible, bright taste.
I hope these wonderful, fresh tasting muffins make it into your list of things-to-try!
