  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup pecans chopped


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Grease muffin pan.
  • Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add 1 egg.
  • In a liquid measuring cup, add ¼ cup of orange juice, 2 tablespoons oil, and boiling water to make a total of ¾ cup of liquid.
  • Pour orange juice mixture into bowl.
  • Mix thoroughly to combine all ingredients.
  • Fold in cranberries and pecans.
  • Pour into a prepared muffin pan.
  • Bake at 325 degrees 35-40 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  • When creating the orange juice mixture it is important to only use enough boiling water to make ¾ cup of TOTAL liquid in the measuring cup. You’ll already have ¼ cup of orange juice plus the oil in your measuring cup before adding the water.
