Muffins? Anyone?

Someone on another thread was asking about chestnuts, and I came across this recipe from chestnutsonline.com. It looks really good! So, I thought I would start a muffin thread.

APPLE-CHESTNUT MINI-MUFFINS

1 egg
1/2 C milk
1/4 C salad oil
1 C chestnuts (peeled and chopped fine)
1 med apple
1 1/2 C wheat flour
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Topping:
1/3 C chestnuts (chopped fine)
1/2 C brown sugar

Heat oven to 400 deg. F. Spray 3 mini-muffin tins with Pam. Beat egg, stir in milk, oil, chopped chestnuts, chopped apple. Beat in remaining ingredients. Make nutty topping by thoroughly mixing chopped chestnuts and brown sugar. Set aside. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Sprinkle about 1/2 tsp of topping on each. Bake 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Immediately remove from pans.

here is one of my favs

Date Orange Muffins (Blender Method)
Makes 12 medium muffins

1 thin-skinned orange, cut into eight pieces, seeds removed.
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup chopped dates
1 egg
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon powdered cloves

Place orange pieces (skin on) into the blender with the egg, buttermilk, dates and butter.
Blend thoroughly until mixture is fairly smooth with flecks. Pour out into a mixing bowl.
In a separate mixing bowl, blend the remaining, dry ingredients.
Dump these into the orange mixture all at once and stir or fold gently with a wooden spoon or spatula only until dry ingredients have combined. Don't mind any lumps.
Fill muffin tins to rim or just under, and bake at 400 F for 20 minutes.
Let stand in pan for five minutes, then remove to wire racks for cooling.

Good Luck!
