Cranberry Orange Muffins

1 Orange
3/4 Cup Dried Cranberries
1 Egg
3/4 Cup Milk
2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 Cups Flour -- (plus 2 1/2 tbsp)
1 Cup Sugar -- (plus 2 tbsp)
1 1/8 Teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 Teaspoon Salt


The night before:


Grate the orange rind. Squeeze the juice from the orange. Mix the
rind, juice, and cranberries in a bowl and refrigerate overnight.
Another option is to reconstitute the cranberries in the orange juice
by heating in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.


The next day:


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the egg, milk and vegetable oil in a
small bowl. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a
large bowl. Add the cranberries (with the juice and rind) to the flour
mixture. Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture. The batter will be
runnier than most muffin batters -- but that's the way it
should be. Fill 12 greased muffin cups (or use foil baking cups to
line the muffin cups) with the batter and bake for 25 minutes.


These muffins are very moist and tasty. The rather strange
measurements of flour and sugar are the result of my reducing the
end result from 4 dozen muffins to 1 dozen.
