Cranberry Orange Muffins

I just realized that I have two cranberry posts in a row…….. I probably should have thought that through a bit better.

Yet……….I didn’t.

Considering that’s the biggest issue I’m facing right now (and it is, believe me), life is PDA – pretty dang awesome.

In all seriousness, I have followed through my resolution to make some serious changes to my life, and I’m very happy about that. Because, and I quote:

Cranberry Orange Muffins – adapted from Williams Sonoma

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 6 tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Cinnamon Sugar, for sprinkling on top (mix 1/4 cup granulated sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, butter, egg, orange marmalade and cranberries. Gently combine the flour mixture into the buttermilk mixture. Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops with about a teaspoon of cinnamon sugar. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until a tester comes clean from the center.
