I noticed this recipe on the side of a tin of condensed milk and thought I'd give them a go.
They weren't incredibly exciting if you ask me, but some people raved. They got better served warm with some butter.
125 gram pitted dates, chopped
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 cup hot water
400 gram condensed milk
1/4 cup oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups wholemeal plain flour
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Place dates and bi-carb in bowl and stir in the hot water.
Add condensed milk and oil and stir.
Stir in lightly beaten egg and flour and cinnamon and mix.
Scoop into 12 muffin tin and back for 20 minutes.
