Cranberry Blueberry Muffins

Cranberry Blueberry Muffins

We like muffins at our house.  I like anything with fruit and nuts or chocolate.  My son likes muffins with tart fruit.  This is one of his favorites.  Filled with chopped cranberries, blueberries and just a hint of orange.

2 cups flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 large egg

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup milk

1/4 cup orange juice

1/2 tsp. grated orange peel

1 cup coarsely chopped frozen cranberries

1 cup blueberries

1 tsp. cinnamon

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and then toss the cranberries and blueberries in and stir to coat.  In a different bowl, whisk together the egg, oil, milk, orange juice and orange peel.  Gently mix together the wet and dry ingredients until well mixed.  Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into paper lined muffin cups.  Sprinkle with sanding sugar.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.  Remove muffins from oven and let sit for 5 minutes in pan, then remove to rack and cool.  Makes 12 muffins.
