Holiday Event: The Billionaire's Christmas Baby by Victoria James (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Mmm...Lemon and Cranberry, two of my favorite things! And romance author, Victoria James is here to share a fabulous recipe that includes those to fruits! Please  give her a warm welcome...

Jackson’s Lemon-Cranberry Muffins

I guess technically, Jackson Pierce didn’t bake these, his housekeeper did-but still.   He did heat them up and serve them to Hannah!  These muffins are fool-proof and delicious.  They can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer for whenever you need a warm winter treat.  The sprinkled sugar and bright cranberries look pretty and festive.

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
½ Cup Granulated Sugar
4 Tsp. Baking Powder
½ Tsp. Salt
Grated rind from one lemon

2 Eggs
¼ Cup Cooking Oil
3/4 Cup Milk
1 Cup Frozen Cranberries

Melted Butter
Sprinkled Granulated Sugar

Measure flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.  Stir thoroughly. Make well in center.
In separate bowl beat eggs until frothy.  Mix in cooking oil, milk, and cranberries.  Pour into well.  Stir just to moisten.  Batter will be lumpy.  Fill greased muffin cups ¾ full.  Bake in 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes.  Makes 18-24 muffins.
Topping: Brush hot cooked muffin tops with melted butter.  Sprinkle with granulated sugar.


The Billionaire's Christmas Baby - By Victoria James
A bit about Victoria James' novel, The Billionaire's Christmas Baby:Jackson Pierce didn't make his fortune entertaining every half-cocked idea, especially one involving diaper changes. Not even the cute brunette who links him to the baby in her arms can crack his icy heart.
A baby on the doorsteps is the least of Hannah Woods problems--she has to find the baby's uncle, or the child will end up in foster care. She sleuths her way to the reclusive CEO's doorstep only to find six feet of holiday sexy--and a door slammed in her face. But when Jackson comes around, and urges they marry for little Emily's sake, Hannah finds herself falling for the jaded billionaire and wishing for a holiday miracle of their own...
