Cranberry-Orange Muffins

Cranberry-Orange MuffinsI love the flavors of orange and cranberry combined so I was excited to try these flavors together in a muffin. They were super simple to make (my kids helped) and they turned out even tastier than I imagined. Both of my kids loved them and have enjoyed them for breakfast and snacks.

Original recipe by Myrecipes
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp orange rind
  • 3/4 cup of fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup of canola
  • 1 large egg
  • Coarse raw sugar

Cranberry-Orange Muffins

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.

Place the dried cranberries and the freshly squeezed orange juice in a small sauce pan and heat over medium heat for 5 minutes. This helps plump up the dried cranberries.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and orange rind together until well mixed. In a separate bowl, add the orange juice, cranberries, canola oil, and egg and mix together. Pour this mixture into the dry mixture and stir until combined.

Pour the mixture evenly into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle a bit of course raw sugar on each muffin top. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for a few minutes. Enjoy.

    Thanks for the recipe – they turned out well, but I baked them a bit too long in the oven :o/

    Just wanted to let you know you left out the amount of flour in your printed recipe!!! It almost was a catastrophe last night while I was baking!

    Sounds great, have you tried it with others ingredients instead of cranberries? Just curious what else is good.
