Citrus Burst Muffins


I had some Craisins that needed to be used up. I looked at the Ocean Spray website and found this recipe. I love the combination of orange with cranberry. Ocean Spray also has a new flavor of Craisins with Orange in them. I haven't tried them yet, but they sound really good.

CITRUS BURST MUFFINS

2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt, optional
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup oil
1 egg
1 cup Craisins
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1/3 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin. Combine flour, both sugars, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Combine milk, orange juice, oil and egg in a separate mixing bowl. Add liquid ingredients to dry, stirring just until dry ingredients are moist. Stir in Craisins orange zest. Fill muffin cups 3/4 of the way full of batter. Sprinkle tops of muffins with pecans and sugar. (I just stirred in pecans and did not add the sugar). Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes in muffin tin. Remove muffins from tin; cool on a wire rack.
