-1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
-3 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1/3 cup sugar
-generous pinch of nutmeg
-1 clementine or small orange
-whole milk (approximately ¼ cup)
-1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
-1 large egg
-1/2 cup dried cranberries OR mix and match with your favorite nut (I used almonds)
-2 teaspoons sugar
-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
-12 cup muffin pan with paper baking cups
-Preheat your oven to 400◦
-In a bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Sprinkle a pinch of nutmeg over and combine again.
-Slice your clementine in half and squeeze (really squeeze – get as much out of there as you can) the juice into a liquid measuring cup. Add enough milk so that your liquid mixture reaches the 2/3 cup line.
-Crack your egg into the juice/milk mixture and then add your melted butter. Stir.
-Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until shoddily combined. Gently fold in your cranberries (and nuts if using). Spoon into the muffin cups.
-Combine the sugar and cinnamon and spinkle generously over the muffins. Bake for twenty minutes. Enjoy warm or room temperature, preferably with butter.
