Cranberries and chocolate are an overlooked and under loved pair. And orange goes so well with both. These muffins = a great morning.
Flour, baking powder, salt and sugar are combined. Orange juice, oil and an egg are added. That is the base of our batter.
Cranberries and chocolate chips are folded in and enveloped by the light orange base.
Divided between twelve muffins cups, the batter is ready to be baked. The preheated oven keeps the kitchen warm, a pretty sweet byproduct of baking, especially in these cold New England winter months.
A warm kitchen and full bellies = a happy family.
