2 cups of flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cranberries (fresh or frozen)
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon orange zest
coarse sugar for topping
combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
stir in cranberries and orange zest.
next, in a small bowl, beat egg, orange juice and oil together. add to dry ingredients. stir until just moistened. spoon into muffin cups and fill 3/4 full. i like to use a ice cream scoop. it seems to be just the right amount and all cups are filled equally. sprinkle each with coarse sugar.
bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes til lightly browned.
and, enjoy!! yum... they are so, so good!!
