Sunday Brunch Recipes – Cranberry Muffins

If you still have a bunch of cranberries sitting in your freezer from Thanksgiving, and you don’t know what to do with them, these cranberry muffins are pretty freakin’ awesome.  So awesome the HH ate 3 of them in a row while standing over the kitchen sink. Yep, they are that good.

Here is the recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda {15 Cool Uses for Baking Soda}
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup orange juice
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups frozen cranberries


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

So this is how lazy I am.  I tossed everything {except the cranberries} into the bowl of my KitchenAid mixer, and mixed everything together for about a minute until all the ingredients were combined.  Then I folded in cranberries, used a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop* to scoop the batter into a muffin tin {that was lined with baking cups*} and popped them in the oven for 18 minutes.

Viola!  18 cranberry muffins. It was super easy.

Life is good.  Especially when you eat cranberry muffins for breakfast.
