I know it’s Monday and that usually means a new menu with grocery list. But today I’ve got something different for you and it includes a really cool giveaway!
Recently, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! contacted me, asking if I wanted to participate in their Holiday Bake-Off. Did I mention that it takes place in New York City this Friday?
I will join 9 other bloggers to take part in a friendly competition at the Unilever Test Kitchens. The fun starts today with a giveaway of baking equipment! But first, my recipe for Cranberry Muffins with Orange Marmalade Glaze.
Cranberries are a perfect ingredient for holiday food. The muffins are sweet, but the tart taste of the cranberries along with the citrus make them taste bright, like sunshine sparkling over snow on a winter morning. They’d be a wonderful addition to Christmas breakfast or brunch, but they are so simple to make they can brighten a plain old Tuesday morning too.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Cranberry Muffins with Orange Marmalade Glaze
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbs. baking powder
- 1 stick I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup coarsely chopped cranberries
- 1/2 cup orange marmalade
Stir the flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
With an electric mixer, cream the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! and sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla and milk and mix until well blended.
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients with a spoon. Stir gently, just until combined. Fold in the cranberries.
Fill greased muffin pan with the batter and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Melt orange marmalade in the microwave in a small bowl. This will only take 20-30 seconds, depending on the power of the microwave. You don’t want to make it too hot, just melted. Dunk the top of each muffin in the marmalade to coat it with the glaze.
