Those muffins look delicious but do you have any that are sugar free … maybe with dates or bananas? Thank you for your ideas.

Anna Ridgewell

Thank you Linda – you can replace the sugar with dates i am sure. I would suggest soaking overnight about 10 dates which should be roughly 400g – let me know how it works out – i will also try a recipe with dates and let you know

Anna, Terri has been baking cookies and such for the grand-kids. We will try the muffin recipe with the beautiful blueberries we are getting right now. Thanks for the great idea. Stay well! 🙂

Good afternoon Anna, how much does this mixture make, I guess maybe 2 dozen? Look so yummy & I have

HI Wendy
Yes in total over the few days it will make about 2 dozen medium sized muffins – the mixture keeps well in the fridge and then add the variations as you are about to bake – enjoy!

Oops I didn’t finish my comment. I meant to say that I have made lots of marmalade of grapefruit, orange & lemon. It is delish

Hmmm, mouth watering! I will definitely try out your recipe. Especially as now is the time of blueberries here.

Still hoping for November but…..;<( my favorite on the table is the bowl of smooth yogurt and accompany ‘fruit sauce.’ Not sure what to call it.

Anna Ridgewell
Executive Chef

Thanks Judy – the ‘fruit sauce’ you are remembering is the compote! and indeed the best with the yoghurt. It’s very simple – a combination of mixed berries (frozen also work well) – place them in a pan and sprinkle with a 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water – allow to simmer slowly until the sugar has dissolved. Hope that helps until your next visit!

Thanx! Im going to try this straight away!

Okay, a new challenge-I’ll need to cut the recipe in half as there’s only me and my elderly mother. I will try the blueberry variation as they’re in season right now.

Made these incredible muffins last weekend and, well, let’s just say there are no leftovers. 🤭 We added blueberries and chopped walnuts. What we were not prepared for was the quantity it made. I got 30 regular size muffins form one batch. Thanks for bringing back so many fond memories of Londolozi with this muffin recipe.
