These turned out so wonderful, but I did change a few things. *1st~ Used Organic French Vanilla fat free yogurt instead of buttermilk. *2nd~ Used baking soda instead of baking powder because of the acid from the yogurt. *3rd~ Left out the vegetable oil *4th~ Only used 6 Tablespoons butter in the muffins mix and the 2 Tablespoons in the topping. *5th~ Used 1 egg instead of 2 (The reason I made these changes was because I was out of the ingredients the recipe called for) Yesterday I made this recipe as muffins but today I made the recipe into a cake and frosted it with orange icing. I will be using this recipe again!! THANKS!

Well, Kit -- this survived a variety of "unavailable" ingredients ! Didn't give a thought to this NOT being fresh cranberry season ! Since I was committed to taking muffins to a neighbor's BD party -- soaked craisins in orange juice for several hours, and cut back on the sugar to 1/2 cup. We ALWAYS (well not quite !) have a container of dry buttermilk -- NOPE ! So I subbed sour cream, and waited to see reactions. I got 44 "2 bite" muffins, and even the kids came back for more -- and 2 asked for recipe. The only adjustment I think I would make (to the original !) would be maybe 1/4 tsp salt to bring out the cranberry flavor. It was a success -- thanks for posting !

I'm sure these are supposed to be great. However, I followed the recipe & made "regular" size muffins: I got 20 very small muffins, and they were pretty dry and a little bland. I won't be making this recipe again!
