Apricot Orange Yogurt Muffins

Author: Canadian Living

While everyone's focus is on Christmas dinner, it's always nice to have something special for Christmas morning as well - nothing that takes too much time, mind you, but something that looks and tastes great. A muffin pleases the little and big folks who can nibble as they participate in the splendid chaos of opening stockings.

  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup slivered dried apricot
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely grated orange rind

Method

In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, baking soda and salt.

In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt and butter; pour over dry ingredients. Sprinkle with apricots and orange rind; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Scoop into greased or paper cup-lined muffin cups, filling to top. (make-ahead: Cover lightly and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven for about 20 minutes or until golden and tops are firm to the touch. Let stand in pan on rack for 5 minutes before serving warm.
