  1. You have certainly inspired me to get baking with these muffins. They look and sound delicious and apricots are one of Fabio’s favourite foods. Love the blog X

  2. Fabio and I made these today. They turned out great. Used agave nectar as had no date syrup. Fabio enjoyed eating the raw materials more than the end result, but he’s not a cake fan anyway. The rest of the family enjoyed them with a cuppa!
