Cranberry Orange Almond Muffins



  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dried orange peel
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon orange extract


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line muffin pan.
  3. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, dried orange peel and sugar in a bowl.
  4. Add egg, milk, melted butter and orange extract and stir just enough to dampen the flour. Do not over mix.
  5. Spoon into muffin pans (I like to use an ice cream scoop. This is something I learned from Ina Garden to ensure all muffins are the same size.)
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.


Until next time, Kris
