“These little darlings use the whole orange! Caution: Do not taste the batter once it is ready to cook. It tastes so darn good you might not get the muffins made at all!” - by Kuldunia
Original recipe yields 1 dozen
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
- Place orange pieces into the blender with the egg, buttermilk, dates and butter. Blend thoroughly until mixture is thick, fairly smooth with flecks. Pour out into a large mixing bowl.
- In a separate bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cloves and ginger. Stir flour mixture into the orange mixture and stir or fold gently with a wooden spoon or spatula only until dry ingredients have combined. Don't mind any lumps that may be present. Fill muffin tins to just under rims with batter.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean. Let stand in pan for five minutes, then remove to wire racks for cooling.

"Very good. I used only 1/2 cup of sugar, and reduced the cloves to 1/4 tsp and the ginger to 1/2 tsp. They were plenty sweet and browned well with the reduced sugar. Next time I may reduce the ginger ..." See morea little more."
"These are incredible! I used melted butter or oil instead of solid butter... otherwise I found the batter wasn't moist enough to mix. These smell wonderful in the oven and taste just as good...." See more"
"Wonderful! Healthy, too. Used 1/4 cup dates (blenderized) as I wanted some raisins (1/4 cup, whole, tossed with the flour). Used 1/4 tsp salt, oil instead of butter, and 1/2 tsp each of the spices ..." See more(just right - don't like too spicy). Done at 15 mins, but prefer the 20 mins as they were more chewy and great muffin crust. Also, used a vegetable peeler to get off the orange part of the rind and threw away the bitter pith (the skins were too thick, I guess). The blender worked well in chopping up big pieces of rind. Thank you for the wonderful recipe - it will be one of my favorites. "
