When my dad brought home a bag of cute little tangerines, I needed a way to use them up quickly, so I composed this yummy, crumbly muffin recipe filled with loads of tangerine sweetness and just enough cranberry tartness!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
Simmer dried cranberries and tangerine juice in a small saucepan over medium heat; remove pan from heat and set aside to cool.
Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Mix butter, tangerine zest, and 1 cup sugar in a separate large bowl, using an electric mixer, until mixture is light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl and beat eggs into butter mixture, one at a time, until thoroughly combined.
Gently fold flour mixture into the butter mixture, alternating with milk in two additions, until batter is just mixed. Fold cranberries and juice into batter. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups and top with 1 teaspoon sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in pan on a rack.

Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the fruit in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain pan , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
Giving your stomach energy a bit of sugar in the morning is important to kick-start your healthy body for the 24 hours and insert important element to your brain, which, incidentally, requires a continuous supply of sugar in the form of process glucose, counting at to around 120g daily.

And of course, you benefit from all the other vitamins and antioxidants in fruit, which keep you strong and healthy.
