Cranberry Orange Muffins

Yields1 Serving

 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1/2 cup sugar
 2 tsp. baking powder
 1/4 tsp. salt
 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)

Preheat the oven to 400F.


In 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.


Fill paper-lined muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and springy to the touch. Makes about 1 dozen muffins.
