Cranberry Orange Muffins
This recipe is adapted ( I have deleted the 1/3 cup of white sugar and use dark rather than light brown sugar) from a recipe of the same name from Mostly Muffins by Barbara Albright and Leslie Weiner, a wonderful little book that Christopher gave me several years ago.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2 c all-purpose flour
½ c firmly packed light-brown sugar [I use dark]
½ c wheat germ [I usually substitute flour]
2 t baking powder
½ t baking soda
1/3 c granulated sugar [I omit]
3/4 c orange juice [I use 1 c]
1/3 c olive oil
1 egg, lightly beaten [I just add whole egg or 1/4 c "egg product"]
1 1/2 grated orange peel [I usually omit]
1 t vanilla
½ c chopped pecans [or walnuts]
