I must add a 5 star review to all the other 5 star reviews that this recipe has received. I made loaves instead of muffins but it did not change the deliciousness nor texture. Great balance of flavors, not difficult to make at all. Thanks for posting, I will use this recipe again!!
I used flax in place of egg and added a little soy milk, and did some in mini-loaves. M said they were among the top 5 yummiest muffins he's had. I chopped the cranberries and mixed them with sugar first. I put in just over 1 1/4 c. sugar when doubling the recipe, plus topping
I made this with those little "Cuties" mandarin oranges that were about to turn, and rehydrated craisins. I had 3/4 c orange juice, and 1/4 c heavy cream to bind everything together then placed in a bundt pan. Yummmmmmy.
Loved these! I used 2 cups cranberries chopped in half and 'marinated' them in 1/4 cup of the OJ with an added 1/4 of sugar (so total sugar upped to 1 cup). I didn't have fresh orange peel, just dried - I uses 2 tsp of that. Also I used unsalted butter instead of oil. Great result and even better the next day!
This is an excellent recipe. Not only do they taste delicious, are moist and fluffy, but they are as pretty as the picture shows!
Great recipe! I made a few changes: I placed the cranberries in a cup and added orange juice until the berries were completely covered. I added: Agave sugar (1/4 tsp) & orange extract (1/4 tsp) to the berries & orange juice. I left the mixture in the refrigerator overnight. I didn't use the orange juice used to soak the cranberries, but I will the next time I make these muffins. I used 1/4 cup brown sugar & 1/4 cup of cane sugar. I substituted 1/4 cup sour cream instead of vegetable oil. **I used 2 tsp of baking powder as recommended by the previous reviews**.
I just made these and they turned out delicous!! I used the tip from another reviewer with using dried cranberries and it worked wonderfully. I did think they could use another level of flavor, so that is why they were only given 4 stars, but this is definitely a keeper!! Maybe a pinch of cinnamon for some depth? I will be using this one again!
Perfect. I had been using the recipe on the back of the Ocean Spray fresh cranberries bag, this recipe is almost identical.Doubled the baking powder as suggested, they rose up perfectly. I didn't have any zest (which is fabulous btw, and worth the effort). I reduced the sugar slightly & added a few extra cranberries. These are my DD's favorite, They freeze beautifully, just pull out and pop in the microwave for a few seconds for a quick breakfast (topped with cream chesse). Thanks for sharing, this one is a keeper.
