Because of the comments of the other reviewers, I used thawed frozen orange juice concentrate and upped the orange zest to 1 tbsp. It definitely brought out the the orange flavor more. I'd like to try this again but sub orange juice for all of the milk.

I didn't find these had an "intense orange flavor". I even doubled the orange zest, added 1/2 cup of diced up orange flesh and used fresh squeezed OJ. It might be because I only used a cup of regular sweetened craisins. They are nice and soft. They are slightly floury tasting, not very sweet. I used buttermilk in place of milk. I added 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips because I like chocolate with orange and cranberries. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Holiday Tag.

Wow! These were really good! I didnt quite taste the citrus in it but the cranberries added something special. Thank you! Pics to come!
