    Put the remaining 4 ingredients into the other large bowl. Stir well. Dig a hole in the center of the flour mixture with the mixing spoon. Put the fruit mixture into the hole. Stir just until the flour mixture is moistened. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups. The cups will be full and the batter mounded. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the pick inserted straight down into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Turn the oven off. Remove the pan to the wire rack. Let stand for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins to the wire rack to cool. Makes 12 muffins.
