Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease 9 muffin cups in a 12-cup standard muffin pan.

  2. Stir together the dry ingredients; set aside.

  3. Whisk together the melted butter or oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla.

  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl and continue to stir for about 30 seconds, until well blended.

  5. Stir in the dried cranberries.

  6. Fill the muffin cups almost full. Let the muffins rest for 10 minutes.

  7. Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, until a cake tester or toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

  8. Remove the muffins from the oven, and after 5 minutes transfer them to a rack to cool.

Tips from our Bakers

  • Allow the muffins to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. This balances the muffins' moisture, making them more tender.
  • Gluten-free muffins bake better in greased muffin pans. If you choose to use paper liners, expect the yield to increase slightly, and the muffins to be less domed.
