“Mmm... one of my favorite recipes! Who doesn't like hot muffins?...fresh from the oven maybe add a pat of butter on top, maybe not! With pecans, lemon zest and of course Cranberries these muffins are very delicious. So make up a batch and let me know what you think.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 12 cup milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon zest...or the zest of one lemon (in a pinch you can substitute with a few drops of lemon extract)
  • 1 12 cups flour (I use 3/4 cup whole wheat and 3/4 cup white)

  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup pecans, chopped
  • 34 cup cranberries, chopped


  1. Watch the video:
  2. With a wire whisk, mix together oil, milk, egg, sugar and lemon zest.
  3. Stir together dry ingredients. Then gently stir into wet ingredients until moistened.
  4. Add chopped pecans and chopped fresh or frozen cranberries. (I use a nut chopper to chop first the pecans, then the cranberries.).
  5. Spoon batter into greased muffin pans. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until an inserted wooden toothpick comes out clean. Remove from pans and serve. Makes about 10 regular size muffins.
