This is a very good muffin! I used a heaping 1/3 cup of brown sugar and left out nutmeg and walnuts because they were not in my pantry. I will be making these again in a few weeks for colleagues.

I made these 2 days ago when I had to use up extra cranberries and buttermilk. I added 2 additional Tbsp of brown sugar, used 1 whole cup of chopped cranberries, omitting the nuts, and sprinkled the tops lightly with turbinado sugar. I baked them at 400 as the original suggests and the muffins were done in 19 minutes. They did not rise much over the top of the muffin pan, but they are very good and not at all heavy. Perfect for a light breakfast.

Sharon this is a great recipe! I just took mine out of the oven so far I have eaten 2! I followed the recipe completely with one exception. I only baked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and they were done. Next time I thinks I will add a little more of the brown sugar for a little more sweetness but they are still great as posted. I did get 15 muffins from the recipe. Thanks for much now I have a another favorite cranberry recipe.
