Orange Cranberry Muffin Recipe


 
Valentine’s Breakfast Treats: Cranberry Orange Muffins
 
Cranberry Orange Muffins
 
makes 12 muffins
 
 
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 egg, well beaten

2 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
2 tbsp hot water
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup orange zest
1 cup fresh cranberries

Cut the cranberries in half and set aside.

 
Sift together dry ingredients in a large bowl.
 In a small bowl beat the egg,, add the butter, hot water, orange juice and orange zest. Mix until blended.
 
Pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients.
 
 Stir  with a large spoon until moistened. 
Fold in cranberries. 
 
Using an ice cream scoop fill the wells in a muffin pan. If you like you can sprinkle some granulated sugar on top of the muffins before baking. 
 
It gives them a lovely sweet crunch. I used orange sugar to top some of my muffins.
 
To make orange sugar simply add a cup of sugar to a small mason jar and add some orange zest to the jar. Stir the zest in and store. Each time you have extra zest add it to the jar to enhance the flavor.
 
 You can do this with any citrus zest you may have on hand.
 
 
Bake about 18 to 23 minutes at 325 F. degrees oven. Cool five minutes and move to a cooling rack.
Tip: It takes about 2 large oranges to get almost a 1/2 cup of juice. You can add a bit of water to bring it up to a full cup. 
It’s such a small amount it doesn’t affect the flavor at all.
 

Enjoy and Happy Valentines Day!
