Simple Breakfast Muffins

My Mom found the recipe for these muffins in Nigella Lawson's How to be a Domestic Goddess and after trying them once, we were hooked. Not only are these muffins delicious and simple, but most of the time the ingredients are already in the house!

  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • fresh nutmeg
  • 1 small orange
  • approx. 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.

Grate and add in a generous amount of the fresh nutmeg. 

Squeeze the orange juice into a measuring cup. Pour the milk on top of the orange juice until it comes to the 2/3 cup mark. Combine with the melted butter and the egg.

Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until more or less combined. Lightly fold in the cranberries. I choose to put the mixture into the muffin cups before adding the cranberries because I make some with and some without. Sprinkle each cup with a little sugar and cinnamon.

Bake for 20 minutes and eat them warm! These are perfect with a little butter and jam.
