Tangerine Cranberry Muffins

 

Tangerine Cranberry Muffins, what a nice way to start the day and just so easy to make.  These deliciously moist muffins are a snap to make and so tasty.  If there’s any left over, the next day I like to slice them in half, place a little butter in a saucepan, place them face down in the melted buttered pan and cook for just a few minutes.  And voila, the heat brings out the flavor and adds a nice crispy crunch !!

 

The secret to gorgeous, plump, full, big beautiful muffins …  don’t overmix.  Take the few extra seconds to blend them properly.  Mix your dry and wet ingredients separately. Then gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and don’t stir … you only want to fold the ingredients together … it’s okay to have lumps.

 

 

Cook Time: 25-30 min.
