I regularly bring baked goodies into the office for my friends and co-workers to enjoy, but one of my work-mates doesn't eat dairy so always misses out... so this dairy free recipe was just the ticket! It's got yummy banana, tangy orange and delicious fruit. It also uses wholemeal flour and doesn't have a lot of sugar either so it's pretty guilt free too!
You will need
75g raisins or mixed fruit
About 3tbsp fresh orange juice
grated zest of 1 orange
140g plain white flour
140g wholemeal self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
100g caster sugar
2 medium eggs
6tbsp sunflower oil
Soak the raisins in about 2tbsp of the orange juice for about an hour.
Mix together the two types of flour, the baking powder and the sugar together.
Mash the bananas in a measuring jug and make them up to 200ml with the orange juice (using some of the juice the fruit has been soaking in if you need more!)
Add the banana mixture into the dry ingredients and then add the soaked fruit, the oil, the eggs and the orange zest.
Stir gently until mixed, but don't over do it!
Spoon into muffin cases (filling them about 2 thirds full) and bake at 200C for about 20mins until golden brown.
