*cranberry orange muffins fresh from the oven..

Oh my!   Do you ever find yourself wanting to bake something, but you don't know what? I was pillaging through my recipe basket yesterday trying to find something that appealed to my baking urges.   I was going to bake the pumpkin muffins that I usually bake in the fall but I wasn't hasty about my choice.  I lingered in the basket a little longer and alas.. I came up with a great idea.  I decided to modify a  basic muffin recipe that I have, just a bit.  It was a huge success!   Here... let me tease you with pictures. I wish we had smella-Mac or tastea-Mac (or for those of you with PC's - smella-PC).  If you were in town, I would invite you over for coffee or a cup of hot tea and a delicious Cranberry Orange Muffin!

Here is the recipe:
Cranberry Orange Muffins
2 1/4 cups flour (fresh milled soft white/hard white mix)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1/2 cup light tasting olive oil
1/2 cup honey (or sugar)
zest of a large navel orange or several med oranges
3/4 or more Ocean Spray dried cranberries

Mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients, mix well. Pour into muffin pan. Bake at 400 degree for 15 minutes.  Don't delay, eat right away!


  1. Yum! you can totally SEE the difference between your stoneware muffins and your metal pan muffins ;)
    I think anyone who wants to make these needs to call up Trina for some Pampered Chef stoneware ;)
    what kind of tea do you like with these muffins?
    orange spice maybe?

  2. I love my Pampered Chef stoneware!
    and yes.. orange spice sounds like a great companion for these


I enjoy your comments. Thanks for taking the time to post your thoughts!
