Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel


Toss cranberries with 1/4 cup of sugar in a bowl; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining 1 cup sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine eggs with milk; stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Gently fold in nuts and orange peel and cranberries. Fill paper-lined muffin tins two thirds full. Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes. Makes about 18 muffins.
