Pecan, Cranberry and Cornmeal Muffins

. January 20, 2008

I just love the texture of these muffins, slightly crunchy from the cornmeal and toasted pecans,moist, with an energizing color.Not too sweet!

For 4 muffins:

- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup cornmeal
- 2 Tbs brown sugar
- 1 ts baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- tangerine juice
- grated tangerine peel
- 1/2 a yogurt
- 1/8 vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/3 cup pecans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread 1/3 cup pecans on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes. Cool briefly, then coarsely chop and set aside.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in cornmeal and reserved chopped pecans. In a second bowl, combine egg, juice, yogurt, and oil. Pour egg mixture over flour mixture, and stir until flour is moistened, using a wooden spoon very briefly.
Spoon batter into muffin tins, filling all the way to the top. Top each muffin with a pecan half. Sprinkle with a little brown sugar . Bake until tops are golden brown cake about 15 minutes.
