I adore muffins. I made a batch this weekend and they were wonderful, full of apricots and almonds and craisins and orange.

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 egg, beaten

3/4 cup orange juice

1 tsp vanilla

1 handful of dried apricots, cut into quarters

1 handful of craisins

1 handful of sliced almonds

Mix the dry ingredients together. Melt the butter and beat the egg. Add all the liquid ingredients and stir just enough to blend. Fold in the apricots, craisins, and almonds. If you have an orange or a lemon on hand, add a teaspoon of orange or lemon zest to the batter – I think it would be a good addition.

Spoon the batter into a buttered muffin tin and cook the muffins for 20 minutes or so in a 350 degree oven.

I recommend doubling the recipe – just freeze whatever you can’t eat.
