It’s Just another “Manic Muffin Monday” So…

Easy Cranberry Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (or raisins, fresh cranberries (any fresh berry) or apple chunks)
  • 1 tsp almond extract (use vanilla if you’re adding something that would go better with that flavor, like chocolate chips)
  • 1 TBSP orange zest (grated orange peel)

Stir together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together oil, milk, egg, and almond extract. Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients all at once and stir until just mixed. Stir in cranberries and orange zest.

Grease a muffin tin and fill each cup 2/3 full with batter. Bake at 400 ° for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and the toothpick comes out clean. This recipe makes approximately 12 muffins. Eat the muffins hot out of the oven!
