It’s November. It’s time to bake!

The weather is changing and there is a chill in the air in California. We are blessed to have gorgeous weather 75 percent of the time, but November is the time to bake. I like to warm up my kitchen and my tummy with these hot out of the oven cranberry orange muffins. They are nutritious made with heart healthy walnuts, vitamin C packed cranberries, and orange juice.
Make them for your family and friends too and you too will find joy in your day.

Cranberry Orange Bread
2 C.  All purpose flour                      
33/4 C. granulated Sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp soda

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and soda. Mix in cranberries, walnuts and zest.
In a small bowl, combine egg, orange juice and canola oil.  Add to dry ingredients stirring until combined.
Grease 2 mini muffin pans, or use small baking papers and scoop batter out and place into muffin tins. Bake in a preheated oven 375 degrees for 20 min or until golden brown and a tooth pick comes out clean. Remove from pans and cool.
