Top Review by StrawberryParfait
Wonderful! Recipie made about 18 small/medium muffins. The dry ingrediants and wet ingredients could be prepared earlier (without mixing them) and then mixed when needed. Didn't have orange zest...which didn't affect it but would help. Used frozen cranberries chopped in a food processor. Was expecting to eat on these for a few days....instead they were mostly gone by the end of breakfast this morning. Good light taste. Medium difficulty to make. I did sift the dry ingredients together. Tastes wonderful as a dessert or appetizer even...pairs well with a glass of white zinfadel wine. Awesome recipie!
