Orange Muffins

We went to Costco last weekend. Ben was in the mood for oranges. So we came back with a big box of oranges...

Since I hate wasting food, decided to make some orange muffins (not that it used up that many of my oranges - only about 2!)

So you will be probably seeing a lot of orange recipes in the next week or so!! LOL!

Orange Muffins
(makes 12 muffins) (made 9)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup orange juice (used fresh - about 2 big oranges)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tablespoon orange zest
Added dried cranberries (about 1/2 cup)

1.Heat oven to 400 degrees F (350F in my oven). Grease bottoms only of 12 muffin cups or line with baking cups.

2.In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, orange peel and salt; mix well. In a small bowl, combine orange juice, oil and egg; blend well. Add dry ingredients all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened (batter will be lumpy.)

3.Fill cups 2/3 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 1 minute before removing from pan. Serve warm.

Oranges are my favourite fruit after lemons so I just have to try these. Do they taste as good as they sound?!

Seriously, do you blog about all this food to make us nuts? Those muffins look so good. I really should bake, but I spend all my time reading blogs.

I did the same thing with lemons the year before last. My stepdaughter came home with a ton of them so I was all, "Okay, I'll make lemon bars! That will use some up!" "Some" turned out to be one or two. Those look delish though! It will be good if it takes you awhile I guess! :-)
