Cranberry-Orange Cornmeal Muffins
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. yellow cornmeal
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. fresh orange juice
1/2 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp finely chopped orange zest
1 c. plus 2 tbsp dried cranberries
2 tbsp brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously butter cups of a 12-cup muffin tin.
Mix baking powder, salt, flour, and cornmeal in a bowl and set aside. Combine
milk and orange juice in a measuring cup and set aside.
In another bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter until it
is light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and beat about 2 minutes, or until very
light. Add eggs one at a time, beating each addition until completely
incorporated. Add vanilla and orange zest and mix well.
Using a spatula, fold in half the flour mixture, then half the milk mixture.
Repeat with remaining mixtures. Fold in cranberries. Scoop batter into prepared
tin, dividing it evenly and making sure to get an equal amount of cranberries
into each one. Evenly sprinkle brown sugar over top of each muffin.
Bake muffins 30 minutes or until golden.
