List of ingredients:

1 cup of all-purpose flour.
1/4 cup of sugar.
1 1/2 teaspoons of double-acting baking powder.
1 teaspoon of salt.
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.
1 1/3 cups of quick-cooking rolled oats.
1 cup of pitted prunes, chopped.
1 cup of buttermilk.
1/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted and cooled.
1/4 cup of molasses.
1 large egg, beaten lightly.


In a suitably sized bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.

Stir in the oats and chopped prunes.

In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, unsalted butter, molasses and egg.

Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring the batter until it is just combined.

Divide the batter among 12 buttered 1/3 cup muffin tins and bake the muffins in the middle of a preheated 400F oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden and springy to the touch.

Turn the muffins out onto a rack and allow them to cool.
