Orange Date Muffins



This is the month of Ramadan and Dates are in abundance in all the supermarkets.  It is at this time of the year that we get to have a great variety of sweet, delicious dates, fresh or semi-dried, from the Middle Eastern countries and I've taken the opportunity to stock  up some.


mmm ......... aren't they inviting ............
