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

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! 🙂

Thanks Michael & Terri – i’ve been seeing all that baking! Enjoy x

Anna, loved the recipe🤗

They look so good we can almost taste them from here but we’d rather be there tasting them with you!

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

Sounds yummy & healthy… would still love ❤️ to have your heavenly granola recipe… I dream about it!

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

Yummy, and the picture with the butter and marmalade made my stomach flip with anticipation of making them!

Thanks Paul! yes, that was my ‘elevenses’ morning moment!


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.

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!

Thanks Anna 😋🙏🏻💕

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.

I have just shared this with family and we will be sending a pic of our muffins soonest!!!! Well done. That special coffee and muffins on a beaut day in a beaut part of the world is a privilege and memories for life. See you soon!!!

Yum, thanks for sharing Anna

You’re going to make me useful in the kitchen! Will try them!!

Oh, but does Tsps mean teaspoons or tablespoons? See, I’m really not a baker!

With a nice cup of English Breakfast, strawberry jam and we’re ready for the day

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.
