Cranberry Orange Muffin Prep: Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Line 2 muffin pans with paper baking cups. Blend butter and brown sugar using a wooden spoon. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, and stir in vanilla, milk and orange juice.

Combine the flours, orange peel, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in another bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in orange juice mixture. Blend just until combined. Stir in cranberries. Divide batter between prepared tins.

Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly touched. Turn out onto a cooling rack.


Individually wrap each cranberry orange muffin in plastic wrap and freeze for easy to grab snacks and breakfasts.
