Apricot Muffins

    I recently had to bake muffins but had no fruit in the house, so I used dried apricots. The result was actually unexpectedly wonderful and now I want to share my muffin recipe with the baking world. :-)

    this was a waste of ingriedients, i did wonder about the lack of sugar content, but gave it a try, they rose but then sunk in oven (no i did not open door, mines glass fronted) on a personnal note if the batter mix was used to make pancakes, it would be very tasty as you could then add some form of sweetener as in syrup or sugar, as the muffins though cooked on the outside after 20mins remained stodgy inside, so another 5mins (lower heat)in was the same thought the out side had become tough and started to over brown  -  15 Aug 2012
