Method

00:25
 
Place the dates, raisins, cherries, sugar, honey, butter, water and orange juice in a microwavable bowl. Microwave these ingredients until melted. The raisins and cherries will still be intact. Allow to cool slightly before adding the eggs. Mix thoroughly.

Sift the flour and baking soda into the mixture and mix until just incorporated. Grate the orange zest in the mixture and give it one more stir.

Add spoonfuls of batter into the muffin holders, halfway to the top. Set the oven down to 140 degrees Celsius and bake for 20 – 25 minutes until golden. A tester pick should come out clean but still moist as these muffins have a very moist centre.

While the muffins are in the oven, prepare the glazed icing by adding a few tablespoons of orange juice to the confectioners’ sugar in another mixing bowl.  Add the juice little by little to ensure you gradually end up with a droopy glaze rather that a juicy one.

When the muffins are cooked, remove them from the pan onto a cooling tray. Gently drizzle the icing over the tops of the muffin.
