I am a devourer of The Baker’s Catalogue. When it comes in the mail, I flip through it over and over, making not so subtle circles around all the things I want. At the back, there are usually a few pages devoted to mixes. As I’ve mentioned before, I am not a big fan of mixes, but I am trying to have an open mind. So, in our local grocery store, I happened upon a package of their Cranberry-Orange Muffin Mix and decided to give it a try.
A quick read of the ingredients is encouraging. Whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cranberries, orange powder, baking powder, baking soda, whey, corn flour, and milk protein. More or less what you’d put in them yourself, I suppose.
The directions are simple enough. Eggs, butter, milk, salt, and the mix. The mix makes 9 muffins, or it can be made into a quickbread. I chose muffins and made 12 slightly smaller muffins.
The muffins were actually very good. I made them for our breakfast, and Quinn had seconds. The cranberry-orange combination was a bit different for me, but I definitely liked it. Overall, I would say that these are a good thing, especially for something to have around to whip up for a quick breakfast.
