When you want a little something extra for breakfast, serve these muffins - you'll get requests for seconds. I store them in the freezer and reheat them when we want them.—Suzanne McKinley, Lyons, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1-1/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Directions

  1. In a bowl, toss cranberries with 1/4 cup sugar; set aside. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Combine eggs and milk; stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in pecans, lemon zest and cranberries. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.
  3. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until muffins test done.
