  • With a wire whisk, mix together oil, milk, egg, sugar and lemon zest.
  • Stir together dry ingredients. Then gently stir into wet ingredients until moistened.
  • Add chopped pecans and chopped fresh or frozen cranberries. (I use a nut chopper to chop first the pecans, then the cranberries.).
  • 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.
