Orange Currant Muffins

2 c Flour
1/2 c Sugar
2 1/2 ts Baking powder
1/4 ts Baking soda
1/2 c Butter (very soft or melted & cooled)
1 tb Lemon peel
1/4 ts Lemon extract
2 ts Orange peel
3/4 c Dried fruit
2 Eggs
1 c Orange juice


To make mix: combine dry ingredients in work bowl of food processor; pulse to blend. Add butter, extract & peels; pulse in brief bursts until mixture resembles corn meal. Transfer to zipper bag & seal. Put dried fruit pieces in small zipper bag and seal. Make instructions to add orange juice & eggs. (If using dehydrated eggs, increase liquid appropriately.)

To bake, combine mix with necessary liquid ingredients; fold in fruit. Divide among 12 muffin cups; bake at 400* about 25 minutes (tester comes out clean).

You can apply the principles to any muffin recipie -- remember, for instance, that applesauce comes in little 1/2 cup containers which are easily packed, if you like apple (bran?) muffins.
