I love baking but not as much as I love to cook. Cooking allows you to be creative and adventurous in your dishes whereas with baking, accuracy is key.
I prefer to bake the simple cupcakes and muffins, which my family enjoy eating. I would experiment with more technical small cakes and desserts occasionally when time permits. There will be no huge 3-tier birthday and wedding cakes on this blog!!
I made these muffins with my favourite ingredients of carrots and dates. I love carrots and dates as they are so versatile in both baking and cooking. Dates add natural sweetness thereby reducing the amount of sugar used. Carrots add that lovely savoury element to a sweet dish.
Muffins are great to bake as you can add whatever you like to them either making them sweet or savoury.
Give these muffins a try the next time you are looking for something quick and easy to make and its sure to be a family pleaser.Yum
