Wen's Autumn Muffins
These muffins are full of wonderful fall flavor. Their festive color and fragrancy make them perfect for having on hand during these busy fall months.
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/4 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup melted butter
1 cup coarsely chopped cranberries
1 cup coarsely chopped peeled and cored apple
1/2 cup diced figs
3/4 cup chopped toasted and skinned hazelnuts
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the milk, beaten eggs, and melted butter. Mix together gently until the batter is just moistened. Add the fruit, hazelnuts, and sugars and mix just enough to evenly mix. Spoon the batter into greased or papered muffin cups. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the muffins rise and are golden brown.
