1/2 cup melted butter or canola oil (or a combination)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
grated zest of an orange
1-2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries (don't thaw them)
1Preheat the oven to 400F.
2In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a smaller bowl or measuring cup, stir together the melted butter or oil, eggs, milk and orange zest. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until almost combined; add the cranberries and stir just until blended.
3Fill paper-lined muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and springy to the touch. Makes about 1 dozen muffins.
