Ingredients:

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ cup sugar
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
100 grams butter
1/2 cup milk
1 egg


Directions:

1. Combine dry ingredients and add cranberries and nuts.
2. Mix melted butter, milk and egg; pour this mixture into dry ingredients.
3. Fold together, being careful not to over-mix.

• Add lemon zest to the muffin mixture and when muffins are cooked, cool for 3-4 minutes then brush with lemon glaze (juice of 1 or 2 lemons and ¼ cup sugar).
