Easy Baking: Cranberry and pecan muffins

 I'm in a really lazy mode, but even in this mode, I still want to bake something ^^.

 Muffin is very easy to make, you need only 2 bowls, ^^, one for dry ingredients, and the other one is for wet, and all you have to do is mix them together (lightly, until just moisten), that's all.
Many people face the problem, that the muffin is tough, it can come from the mixing, you don't have to mix until smooth, (you will activate the gluten too much)  just moisten all the ingredients, they will come together when they get into the oven. 
Anyway, don't expect it to be like the cupcake, the texture is a bit different, but I think it's quite additive, hehe.
Well, I finish one muffin while typing this post, and I think that another piece will be great too.
