Yukon low-bush cranberry and orange muffins

Yield: 12 Muffins

Measure Ingredient
2 larges Oranges
1 cup All-purpose flour
1 cup Graham cracker crumbs
½ cup Brown sugar
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1 cup Low-bush or regular cranberries
1 cup Raisins
½ cup Chopped pecans,preferably toasted
1 Egg
⅓ cup Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Grease 12 muffin cups or coat with cooking spray. Finely grate peel from one orange and squeeze juice from both.

Measure juice. Add enough water to bring volume up to 1 cup. Measure flour, graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Stir with a fork until mixed, then make a well in centre of bowl.

If using regular cranberries, cut each berry in half, if large. Stir cranberries with raisins, pecans and orange peel in a small mixing bowl.

Add to flour mixture and mix well. In a small bowl, beat egg lightly, then stir in orange juice, oil, and vanilla. Add to flour mixture and stir just until combined.

Immediately spoon batter into muffin cups. Bake in centre of 375F (190C) oven until a dark golden color, and a cake tester inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Turn muffins out onto a cooling rack. Serve warm.

Store muffins in a sealed bag at room temperature for up to 2 days. Or refrigerate, or preferably freeze.
