    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These muffins always turn out moist and delicious with a wonderful orange flavor, because of the lovely red cranberries it makes a wonderful Christmas brunch muffin --- cranberries can be replaced with frozen or fresh blueberries if desired :)

      Very yum. I used veg oil instead of butter (just being lazy), also added 1 1/2 cups frozen cranberries, which I didn't defrost. For me, 20 was more than enough (18 was likely best) and I got 12 regular and 12 mini muffins from the batter. Will make again for sure, as they were tender and moist, but may sprinkle with brown sugar next time. Thanks

      Super!!! Easy to make. The only thing I did different is I pre-heated the oven to 400, then turned down to 375 because with a dark baking tin, muffins tend to burn. I baked for 23 minutes and they were perfect! I also cut the cranberries in half to spread them more evenly throughout the muffins. What a great combination of sweet and tart...great with coffee! Thanks Kitten for a wonderful recipe!
