I love the taste of Cranberry, and these muffins are an excellent combination of cranberries and oranges!

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.
- 2 cups flour
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup cranberries
- 1 egg
- 3⁄4 cup orange juice
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
