Recipe submitted by Gaile Certini of Visalia for the 1989 Visalia Farmers Market Harvest Cookbook.
1 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup dates, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 cup oil
How to Make:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease the bottom of 12 muffin pan cups.
Sift the all purpose flour with baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the whole wheat flour and mix well.
Combine the milk and the rest of the ingredients in a medium bowl, and beat well with a wooden spoon.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour in milk mixture all at once and stir quickly with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not beat. Batter will be lumpy.
Quickly dip batter into muffin pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until browned.
