Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Cranberry Orange Muffins

This muffin speaks for itself!  
It says, "I am moist, and 
I am flavorful with my 
blend of cranberries, oranges, 
and nuts!"

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (OR 1 cup?) of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole cranberries, chopped.
  • 1/4 cup finely grated carrots (totally optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup orange juice 
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (I used "Smart Balance" oil.)
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  1. Combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt).
  2. Stir in chopped cranberries.
  3. Beat egg, orange juice, oil and orange rind.
  4. Add to dry ingredients all at once.
  5. Stir JUST LONG ENOUGH to moisten.
  6. Spoon into greased (or lightly sprayed) muffin cups.  Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
  7. Sprinkle tops with a tiny bit of sugar (Turbinado sugar looks best, but "regular" will do.)
  8. Bake at 400-degrees for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned and a bit firm to the touch.
