I love this recipe! It make two big easy and so good!

4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 pinches of salt
juice of two oranges
4 tbsp. oil
2 eggs well beaten
2 cups of cranberries cut in half

Sift together dry ingredients. Combine juice and oil to make 1 1/2 cup (juice from the carton is ok). Stir in beaten eggs. Pour this mixture into dry ingredients, mixing only to dampen. Fold in cranberries. Bake in 2 greased loaf pans at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Sprinles top with sugar before baking.

French Doughnut Muffins

My boys love doughnuts, so here a muffin recipe (that I've modified) that's is a whole lot healthier than eating a doughnut. The original recipe says to dip the baked muffin in butter, then roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. I omit this step and just sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top of the muffin before baking. We like them just as well and it cuts out some of the fat.

3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup milk
2 large eggs beaten
2/3 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon
~1/4 cup sugar

Sift flour with sugar, baking powder, salt & nutmeg. Combine eggs and oil & vanilla.
Add liquid ingredients to flour mixture, stirring only until all ingredients are moistened. Fill greased muffin pan half full, top with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake at 400 degrees approximately 20 minutes. Make 12 large or 24 small muffins.
