#38) Lemon Cranberry Muffins


I know the title says "muffins", but I gotta say, these little guys have a more cake-like texture. Thus, they are more of a cupcake than a muffin. But, despite the unintended texture, the taste is great - nice and lemony with a nice bite form the cranberries. Not bad for my first foray into the world of cranberries :)

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup oil
1 cup chopped cranberries
zest of 1 large lemon

Steps

-Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 12-cup muffin tray with paper liners.
-Mix dry ingredients together.
-Beat eggs with milk, lemon juice, and oil. Stir into dry ingredients. Mix just until moistened.
-Add cranberries and zest and fold in.
-Divide batter between lined muffin cups.
-Bake for 20-25 minutes.
