About this recipe: This super recipe calls for a whole orange, peel and all. The dates lend natural sweetness and flavour that is utterly delicious, and cloves and ginger add just a hint of spice.
These were about the lightest muffins I've ever eaten. They also smelled amazing and were so simple. I used normal milk instead of buttermilk. The family were very appreciative - 06 Aug 2015
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 a little more. - 01 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 28 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
