Cranberry Orange Muffins with Walnut Crumb Topping

My daughter Molly made these and sent them home with me and of course I had to shoot them.
Now that my work is done, I think I will fix a cup of tea and indulge in a muffin!

2 c. FLOUR
3/4 c. SUGAR
1 tsp. BAKING POWDER
1/2 tsp. BAKING SODA
1/2 tsp. SALT
1 c. CRANBERRIES
1 EGG
3/4 c. ORANGE JUICE
1/4 c. VEGETABLE OIL
1 tsp. grated ORANGE RIND

Combine dry ingredients. Stir in cranberries.
Beat egg, orange juice, oil and orange rind. Add to dry ingredients all at once. Stir just to moisten.

Spoon into greased muffin cups. (fill 3/4 full).
Sprinkle walnut crumb topping over muffins.

Bake 400F 15-20 minutes until lightly browned and firm to the touch.

WALNUT CRUMB TOPPING

1/4 c. WALNUT PIECES
1/2 c. ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
2 Tbsp. SUGAR
2 Tbsp. LIGHT BROWN SUGAR
1/4 tsp. BAKING POWDER
Pinch of SALT
2 1/2 Tbsp. BUTTER, melted

In a pie plate, toast the walnuts for 5 minutes, or until browned and fragrant; cool.

In a large bowl, mix the flour with the granulated and light brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the butter, then add the walnuts and pinch the topping mixture into clumps.

Wonderful when you can share an interest with a child, and your daughter must have had a good introduction to cooking from you. Both of my children were taught at an early age to prepare food and both love it. It's a very safe subject, too, to discuss with children, when other issues might be "sensitive" to discuss!

My favourite! Superb photograph.
All I need is some Clotted Cream to go with the berries and I will be content.
