A recipe from Doug Heywood of Winstead Inn and Beach Resort, Harwich Port

Introducing Doug Heywood of the Winstead Inn and Beach Resort. In Doug’s own words, this is why he loves being an Innkeeper on Cape Cod: I moved to Cape Cod so I could breath the salt air, listen to waves hit the shore, and watch the sun and moon beams dance on the water. My position at the Winstead Inn has made that dream come true. For twelve years I have been blessed to call the picturesque villages of Harwich Center and Harwich Port home. Our guests frequently ask me“what is it like to live and work in paradise?”. You have to love people, and I certainly love to watch people having fun. It is so rewarding to catch up with regular guests year after year, and most of all to introduce regulars to new guests experiencing it all for the first time.

Cranberry-Orange Muffins

Winstead Inn's Doug Heywood and his Cranberry-Orange Muffins Recipe

This recipe serves 24 people

The 1st commercial cranberry bog in the United States was in Harwich. So since we are about cranberry’s, and who doesn’t like them, try our Cranberry-Orange Muffins.

Bowl 1 – Whisk together

4 cups flour

1 1/4 cups(little less) granulated sugar

2 Tsp baking powder

1 Tsp salt

Zest of whole orange (not navel)

Bowl 2 – Whisk together

3 Lg eggs

12 tbl (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter(melted)

Juice of orange plus milk to total 1 cup

1/2 cup sour cream

Bowl 3:

2 cups frozen chopped cranberries

CRUMB TOPPING – This finishes and truthfully makes the muffin.

8 tbl (1 stick) of butter softened to room temperature

1 cup flour

1/2 cup white & 1/2 cup brown(light or dark) sugar

Fork together to consistent crumble

PREHEAT oven 375 degrees(bake convection)...GREASE 2 standard muffin tins.

Combine bowls 1 and 2, stirring just until evenly moistened.  While still lumpy, fold in the 2 cups frozen chopped cranberries (DO NOT over mix).

   ***Use a 2 inch scoop (generous) to fill muffin cups and top with heaping tbl of topping,

We make mixture a day in advance and refrigerate for next day.  If baking right away, the cooking  time should be slightly shortened or slightly lengthened if not convection oven.

.BAKE 22 minutes, tops should be dry and springy...COOL 5 minutes
COOL 5 minutes, and enjoy...This is a favorite of many guests, but there really is no need to go through all of this; just make a reservation and request them.
