Fresh orange cranberry muffins

While Jen was settling in and watching her favorite movie, Zoolander, she thought "what goes well with orange mocha frappuccinos?" Boom, orange cranberry muffins were born! I did, however, recommend that she make them at least 3 times this big but we didn't have a tin big enough for that.



  • 2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3  cup sugar
  • 2  teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1  cup  chopped fresh cranberries
  • 2/3  cup milk
  • 1/4  cup butter, melted
  • 1  teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1/2  teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1  large egg, lightly beaten


Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir. Stir in cranberries. Combine milk, butter, orange rind, vanilla, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center.
