Delicious Date Muffins

The weather here is so cold and it makes the children hungry more often .The other day,a little later after we had our lunch,the children wanted me to serve something for dessert.Since I didnt have any prepared ones in my refrigerator,I decided to make something from scratch.I  really enjoyed adding some new ingredients to a recipe that I had tried earlier.I had  first tried this recipe with plums. Since then,I have made with various other  fruits like apples,bananas and raisins and nuts However this time I  thought I will  try with yet another kind.So I added Dates to this recipe.Believe me,this was really, really good.The aroma was so irresistible that we were all waiting with plates and spoons to eat it straight from the oven.Trust me,don’t postpone, try making  them  immediately.It was so delectable eating it still warm and with a steaming cup of tea..This is something    wonderful   to  delightfully indulge  on a cold afternoon.

1 and 1/2 cups flour
250 grams sweetened condensed milk
