Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 Cups White Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Aluminum-Free Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Stick Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Zest
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons Orange Juice (we used fresh squeezed)
  • 3/4 Cup Milk (we used 2% fat)
  • 1 Cup Dried, Sweetened Cranberries (chopped)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Instructions
  1. First, remove the butter from your fridge to soften or soften slightly in the microwave.

  2. Next, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Afterward, in a stand mixer or using a large mixing bowl and hand mixer, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  4. Then, add the sugar, butter, egg, milk, orange juice, and vanilla to the dry mixture and blend everything together until the batter is well-mixed.

  5. After that, fold the orange zest and dried cranberries into the muffin mixture.

  6. Now that you have all the ingredients combined take a cupcake pan and fill it with cupcake liners and muffin batter. However, you will only want to add enough of the mix to fill the liners to 2/3 full. 

  7. Place the pan into your preheated oven and let the muffins cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until they are done.

  8. Last, remove the muffins from the oven and set them on a cooling rack to cool off a little before serving them.
