                                                            CRANBERRY/WALNUT MUFFINS

THESE MUFFINS HAVE BEEN REQUESTED, BUT THERE IS A SLIGHT PROBLEM.  I STARTED WITH A MIX AND THE PROCESS EVOLVED INTO ADDITIONS TO THE MIX.  HOW WAS I TO KNOW THAT THESE WOULD BE REALLY REALLY GOOD?  LET ME TRY TO EXPLAIN.  YOU MUST START WITH A KRAUSS (I HOPE THAT IS RIGHT.  AT THIS POINT I AM NOT SURE) FAT FREE ORANGE CRANBERRY MUFFIN MIX.  IT CALLED FOR 1 CUP OF WATER AND I DECIDED TO USE ORANGE JUICE INSTEAD.  I ALWAYS TASTE THE BATTER AND IT HAD A REALLY TART TASTE WITH A WHANG!  SO BEGAN THE ADDITION OF MORE INGREDIENTS:

1 BOX OF KRASS FAT FREE ORANGE CRANBERRY MUFFIN MIX
1 CUP ORANGE JOICE
2 CUPS OF FLOUR
1 CUP OF SUGAR
1 TO 1 1/2 CUPS OF FRESH CRANBERRIES, CUT IN HALF (AT LEAST THE LARGEST ONES)
1 CUP OF NUTS (I USED WALNUTS)
1 EGG (POSSIBLY 2--SEE BELOW)
 1/2 CUP OF WATER
I BEGAN THESE MUFFINS AS DIRECTED ON THE BOX--SO IF THE MIX CALLED FOR AN EGG, THEN I ADDED TWO EGGS IF NOT--THEN JUST ONE WHEN I BEGAN THE ADDITIONS.

I MIXED THE DRY INGREDIENTS OF THE BOX WITH THE ORANGE JUICE AND POSSIBLY AN EGG.  THEN I ADDED THE 2 CUPS OF FLOUR, 1 CUP OF SUGAR,  THE EGG, AND 1/2 CUP OF WATER   LASTLY FOLD IN THE CRANBERRIES AND NUTS

BAKE IN LARGE MUFFIN TIN @ 400 DEGREES FOR 25 MINUTES.  LESS FOR REGULAR SIZE MUFFIN TIN (CUPCAKE SIZE).  SORRY THIS IS SO CRAZY--BUT ONE FRIEND SAID THESE MUFFINS WERE A MUFFIN THAT STARBUCKS WOULD BE PROUD TO SERVE.  I JUST HAD TO POST IF ONLY FOR HER.  I WILL LOOK FOR THE MUFFIN MIX AGAIN AND CLARIFY THE NAME AND THE AMOUNT OF EGGS.
