Gold Medal Flour

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray medium muffin cups, 2 1/2x1 1/4 inches, with cooking spray, or line with paper baking cups.
  • 2
    Beat milk, oil, orange peel and egg product in large bowl with spoon. Stir in flours, 1/3 cup sugar, the baking powder and salt just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy). Fold in cranberries.
  • 3
    Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (cups will be full). Sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Muffin pans, introduced in the mid-1800s, were an arrangement of "gem" cups fastened together by a rack. To this day, muffins are still called "gems" in many parts of the country.
  • tip 2
    For extra orange flavor, replace half of the milk with 1/2 cup of orange juice. When grating orange peel, grate only the orange part of the peel; the white part, or pith, is bitter.
  • tip 3
    Instead of using fat-free cholesterol-free egg product or egg whites, go ahead and use 1 whole egg, if you like.
