      I made this recipe just last weekend, and I have to say it was great! I have been looking for a muffin recipe that had soooo much orange flavor but had the tartness of the cranberries. Very nice balance as well as moist! I test lots of recipe's and this is a keeper. I have made this once more and have made a couple of modifications. ( I always first try it original) Added more Baking powder since normal ratio's are 1 tsp per cup of flour. I also switched the oil to unsalted butter. I also used dried cranberries that had been re-hydrated by 1/2 cup of water and 2 tbs of sugar. These turned out to be excellent as well! However, the recipe is excellent as is.

      These were great! I did increase the BP to two teaspoons like other reviewers. I also used the zest of one whole orange. Based on the reviews of being tart I chopped the cranberries coarsely and stirred them into the sugar and let them sit for a couple of minutes before adding the rest of the dry ingredients. This worked well, they were sweet and tart but not too tart! Will be making these again in the future.

      Based on some of the previous comments stating that the muffins were dry and tart, I decided to replace the cup of cranberries with a cup of canned whole cranberry sauce, and the muffins turned out fantastic! They were not at all dry, nor were they tart. They were moist, sweet, but not overly so, and had a wonderful balance between orange and cranberry, both flavours came through perfect.

      I would definitely make these muffins again, they were delicious!!! A very nice treat.
