MoFo 11 Once Upon a Time Muffin

Once upon time there were two sleepy people who lived in a tiny little hamlet that didn't serve ham. This tiny little hamlet was named Veganville.The two sleepy people worked day and night to bring all kinds of vegan treats to neighboring cafes. On the second day of MoFo in the year of 2010 a giant who loved dogs and coffee ordered all kinds of Veganville treats, so many treats that the two sleepy people and their cats worked all day and night just to supply the giant.The people in the Land of Giants were very happy until on the 11th day of MoFo the mean muffin lady, the one with the Giant hormonal muffins came back from vacation, and the Giants from the Land of Giants remembered what they had forgotten. They remembered that the mean muffin lady's muffins were Jumbo- Jumbos and just the perfect size for Giants and their dogs. Who cared if the mean muffin lady's muffins were made with salmonella laden eggs. These babies were big unlike Veganville's muffins which in the Land of the Giants were considered 5'11" muffins or just under 6 feet. So the two sleepy people decided to do what they usually do when presented with a problem. They pronounced it Veganville nap day and took to their bed.

The 5'11" Cranberry Orange Walnut Muffin
3 C flour
1/2 T baking soda
1/2 T baking powder
2 T energee
1 T pumpkin Spice
1 C organic sugar

1/2 C canola oil
1/2 C Rice milk
1/2 C Orange Juice
2 C dried orange cranberries (or plain dried cranberry if you can't locate)
1 C chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 6 jumbo muffin cups with cup cake liners (or 12 standard)
Whisk dry ingredients in bowl. Mix wet ingredients in another bowl. Add dry to wet.

This is a perfect muffin after a snooze.


  1. Looks so good!!!!

    I suck at cooking. One time, I mixed some milk and orange juice and added a ton of sugar to it and hoped it would taste like an orange creamsicle... it didn't work :( Anyway, seeing milk and orange next to each other in the recipe list reminded me of that :)

  2. My mom makes cranberry-orange quick bread every year at Christmas . . . fond memories!

  3. I bet you can paint an orange creamsicle muffin, Tiffany.
    OOh sounds good Catherine.
