Ingredients

Equipment
  • Oven
  • 12 Muffin Paper Cases
  • Large Bowl
  • Wooden Spoon

Method
  1. Heat your oven to 180C/ 160C fan/ gas 4.
  2. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases. In a large bowl, beat your butter and sugar together until creamy and well-combined.
  3. Stir in your grated carrots and chopped dates.
  4. In another bowl, combine your flour(s), cinnamon, and baking powder. Begin to add your eggs to your carrot mixture, a little at a time, alternating with spoonfuls of the flour mixture, until everything is mixed together.
  5. Finally, mix in your walnuts.
  6. Divide your mixture evenly between your 12 muffin cases. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until firm and starting to turn golden.
  7. While they bake, pop your icing sugar (if using) in a large bowl and slowly drizzle in the lemon juice, mixing with a whisk or a fork, until you have a smooth, fairly thick but pourable icing – you might not need all of the lemon juice.
  8. Let your muffins cool for 5-10 minutes, then drizzle with the icing.
