I made these this evening, very yummy (and healthy if you care about such things).
Makes 12

Dry stuff:

3oz wholemeal plain flour,
5 1/2 ounces plain flour,
1oz wheargerm (which is a very good source of folic acid apparently – but if you don’t have any just substitute with wholemeal flour),
2oz soft brown sugar,
2tsp bicarbonate soda,
1/2 tsp ginger,
1/2 tsp cinnamon,
3ox chopped dates,
2oz chopped walnuts.

Mix together in a bowl and make a well in the centre, like so:

Wet, goopy stuff:
8oz natural yoghurt,
4tbsp sunflower oil,
2tbsp mollases,
1 egg.

Whisk together in a little bowl:

Then pour the goopy mixture into the well in the dry stuff. Mix until just combined. Spoon into muffin cases:

Bake at gas mark 6 for uhh… until they’re done. I didn’t time it but maybe about 20 mins – you can test by sticking a fork into one – if it comes out clean they’re done.
Enjoy!

Our latest Ysolda brand yarn is Moss, available as Moss DK and Moss Light (a fingerinf 4 ply). We chose the name because this 2-ply blend of British Blue Faced Leicester and Masham is soft, pillowy, and lustrous; it truly reminds me of walking on a mossy forest floor.
