12 muffins


  • ¾ cup milk

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup cranberries, halved

  • cup toasted slivered almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line cups with paper liners.

  2. Whisk milk and lemon juice together in a jug to make sour milk; whisk in eggs and oil until smooth. Stir flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl, making a well in the center; pour milk mixture into well and stir just until batter is combined; fold in cranberries.

  3. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full; sprinkle with almonds.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 18 to 20 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
