Do you still have cranberries in your freezer from when they were on sale over the holidays? This is a great way to use them! I got the recipe here from My Recipes. The only difference is that they put walnuts in it.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar (reserve 1 TBS of this for top of muffins)
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. grated orange peel
- 3/4 cups of orange juice
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 egg
- 2 cups chopped cranberries
Preheat oven to 400.
Mix the dry ingredients (minus 1 TBS. sugar). In a separate bowl mix the orange peel, juice, oil and egg. Combine the two mixtures. Fold in the cranberries.
Scoop the batter into greased muffin tins and sprinkle the remaining sugar on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the muffins are done.
Another one of my favorite muffin recipes is cranberry sauce muffins.
