Made these for my son to take to his fellow teachers before Thanksgiving break. Decorated a wire basket and enclosed gorgeous fall napkins. How beautiful! And still delicious. A feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.

Very nice muffin. I used the food processor to slice the cranberries - worked great. My only changes were to add about 1 cup chopped walnuts & to add the juice & zest of 1 orange to the buttermilk (so that together, they equal 1 cup). I really enjoyed these & so did my friends. They were all gone quickly. Thank you very much for sharing - I don't need to try those other cranberry orange recipes - I have found the one I will use from now on.

OMG! I made these to take to my school's monthly food day. I had too much batter for the muffin cups, so my husband gleefully ate the batter with a spoon. He loved it! Several asked for the recipe, and I want to make more for the holiday. I added walnuts to the batter as well as in the streusel mix. Otherwise, I followed exactly. Baking time was right on. Delicious and beautiful to look at!

Yum-yum-azing! These are muffins to be super-proud of. They look beautiful, inside and out. I followed the recommenation of another reviewer and added the entire zest and juice of one orange and one cup of chopped walnuts to the batter. This is an unusual recipe, both in the way it's mixed and the two different baking temps, but the results speak for themselves. I bake a lot, but I have not received such compliments from my husband as I did after baking these the first time. The recipe, as amended (including the additional 1/4-cup of flour, as suggested) yielded 16 large gourmet muffins!
