This morning I had an extra 40 minutes so I decided it was time to make a new muffin I had bookmarked from Cooking Light. I basically followed the recipe, but of course, I didn't follow it to a T. I will mark my changes in red below.
from Cooking Light
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sweetened dried cranberries (I used part cranberries and part mixed dried fruit, not the really hard dried fruit, softer dried fruit)
2/3 cup light coconut milk (I had to use a little more as the batter wasn't picking up all the dry ingredients)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons sugar (I used crystal sugar flakes)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips - this is my addition. I had a few left so I just threw them in. I know, not in keeping with cooking light and kind of defeated the purpose - but I did it anyway. Sometimes you gotta be a rule breaker! :-p
Preheat oven to 400°.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in cranberries; make a well in center of mixture. Combine coconut milk and next 4 ingredients (through egg), stirring well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Place 12 muffin cup liners in muffin cups. Spoon batter into lined cups. Sprinkle evenly with 2 teaspoons sugar. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove muffins from pans immediately; place on a wire rack.
See the photo above? That is my baby Rudy Rut-ton. He' s getting so big so fast! He is a hellion too. Sure, he doesn't look it below because he's dead to the world....but earlier this evening, he climbed up my treadmill to get hold of a decorating garland I had hanging from the handle. What a stinker! Yeah, he was tuckered out from his racing around the house like a mad man after I got home from work!
