  • .>(American / Metric measures)<
  • . WET MIX:
  • . 1 large egg
  • . 1/2 cup (125ml) ripe bananas (about 2 small), mashed
  • . 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil (grape seed preferred)
  • . DATE MIX:
  • . 1 pkg. - 8oz. (250g) pressed Dates, pitted
  • . 1 Tbsp. (15ml) instant Coffee
  • . 1 cup (250ml) boiling water
  • . DRY MIX:
  • . 2-1/4 cups (292g) unbleached All-Purpose flour
  • . 2 tsp. (10ml) baking powder
  • . 1/2 tsp. (2.5ml) baking soda
  • . 1/2 tsp. (2.5ml) sea salt
  • . 1 tsp. (5ml) ground cinnamon spice
  • . 1 tsp. (5ml) ground cardamom spice
  • . 1/2 cup (105g) granulated sugar
  • . 1/4 cup (50g) brown sugar, packed
  • . 3.5oz. (100g) bittersweet, 70% Chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • . 1/2 cup (80g) walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • .
  • . garnish: finely ground coconut or slivered almonds
  • . 24 paper liners (optional)
  • . vegetable oil spray


  1. . Pre-heat oven at 350F/180C/Gas 4. Position rack at the 2nd level from the bottom of the oven. Prepare two muffin pans with paper liners. Note: oil spray will be used right before pouring the batter.
  2. . In a small bowl, prepare the date mix by first dissolving the instant coffee into the boiling water and then adding the mashed dates. Set aside.
  3. . In a large bowl, combine all DRY ingredients. Make a well and add the WET ingredients. Combine slightly before also adding the date mix. Combine until there is no appearance of flour. Do not over mix the batter. Set aside.
  4. . Take the muffin pans and paper liners (optional)...spray a generous spot of oil into every cavity. Fill each cavity three-quarters of the way. This will ensure a domed cap. The optional garnish can be sprinkled on top if desired.
  5. . BAKE them for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. When you take them not wait longer than 5 minutes to extract them out of their moulds. Place them onto a metal rack to have them cool. Yes, they will still be hot...but not unmanageable. This will stop the muffin from over baking and will keep the liners from sticking too much to the muffin. Note: When ready to peel off the cupcake gentle.
  6. . Happy baking and Claudia's flavourful
