Lucy Schaeffer

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Makes:  12 servings
Serving Size: 1 muffin

You'll Need:

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 navel orange, cut into eighths
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat a standard-size 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Put the orange wedges, orange juice, egg, and oil into a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; whisk to incorporate. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients; pour the orange mixture into it and stir to make a thick batter. Stir in the cranberries.
  4. Divide the mixture among the muffin tins, filling the tins about 3/4 full, and bake until the muffins are golden and push back when gently pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool on a rack and enjoy warm or toasted.
