  • 2 small boxes (8.5 ounces each) corn muffin mix (I use Jiffy brand)
  • 2 eggs
  • Zest from 1 navel orange (or 2 clementines)
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • ½ cup dried cranberries that have been lightly tossed in about ½ teaspoon flour
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Grease muffin pan or line with paper baking cups.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together first 5 ingredients. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
  4. Fold in cranberries and let batter rest for 3-4 minutes.
  5. Stir gently and divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  6. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Recipe Notes
  • Want to Prep Ahead? You can bake a batch of these muffins in advance and keep them wrapped tightly in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just thaw as many muffins as you need on the counter for an hour or two before you're ready to enjoy.

This is a great way to use one or two muffins at a time when you need a simple side dish for a meal.

  • Make sure to let the batter rest before baking (see recipe card)
  • Don't over mix the batter or it will become too dense
  • To check the muffins are done insert a toothpick into the center and make sure it comes out clean
