"Also found this to be just like Dunkin Donuts..used homemade cranberry sauce from christmas dinner, just cut back on the sugar and zest (which was already in the sauce)..grandkids couldnt get enough..Thanks"
"I love Dunkin' Donuts' cranberry orange muffins and had hoped these would be similar. I wasn't disappointed! Great muffins."
"Made for June, 2010 Orange Tag Game. Very nice (and easy to make) muffin. Not sweet at all, and with just enough hint of tart to give it a nice "zing." Mine turned out a tad dry, but I believe I baked them too long. I hit 23 mins. and forgot to check after 20. Twenty minutes in my oven would have been enough; but...there's always next time to correct MY error! Thanks for a great cranberry/orange recipe."
"Oh my gosh, I'm definitely going to be making these muffins a lot!! I used chopped pecans, but I'm sure they are good with any kind of nut. I took made these to take to Christmas brunch, and they were a hit. Thanks for posting the recipe!"
"I have a standard muffin recipe that I've used for over 30 years but it requires buttermilk and I had none at home. Time to try something NEW, I thought, so I searched for a much reviewed Cranberry-Orange Muffin recipe and saw this one. It turned out delightfully light and flavourful; very easy to make. I added 1 tsp. of ground ginger to the batter, used melted butter rather than oil and left out the nuts; topped muffins with an orange zest/sugar/cinnamon dusting. Fifteen minutes after they were cool enough to eat, there was NO evidence of their existance...they were completely gone! Wonderfully fast and easy to make; another classic to add to the recipe file. Saves me from having to buy buttermilk just for muffins!"
"Very good and easy to make. They're moist and sweet-tart and look great! Will make these again!"
"Really good! Moist and tasty. I left the cranberries whole and added chocolate chips instead of nuts (due to an allergy)."
"This is a great muffin recipe! I've made it twice now, with good results. The first time, I was in too much of a rush and forgot to put the 1/2 cup sugar in with the other dry ingredients. Those were a bit tart! The second time, doubled the recipe and replaced 1/2 the flour with whole wheat flour. The texture was not as good as the first batch. I think that doubling the recipe may make one more prone to over-mixing. Both batches rose nicely, though. I think that perhaps the reviewer who gave the low score had expired baking powder. I was all out of nuts, so we made these without nuts, but I'd like to try them with sliced almonds. My kids love these muffins! Thanks for posting!"
"used whole berries too....have made it several times"
"I followed the recipe exactly, but doubled everything to make a batch for a large group. The flavor is fantastic but the muffins never rose. I don't know why--I doubled the baking powder, too, which may not have been enough--? At any rate, they taste wonderful but look very amateurish, which is disappointing."
"I wanted to try a cranberry muffin recipe with orange zest, so this one sounded good. It was good, and went together quickly, but the muffins didn't taste sweet enough. I wished I had put some sugar on top of them before I baked them. I would try it again, adding the sugar on top. Thank you!"
"These muffins are great. I used frozen cranberries and 1/4 cup fresh squeezed OJ (I added 1/4 cup skim milk to the OJ to get the full 1/2 cup). These changes had no effect on the outcome. They are easy to make and really tastey!"
"These muffins were great. I used dried cranberries and fresh orange juice and peel. The flavor and texture were super."
"My hubby ask if he could rate these a 10. We really like them.We,ll make them again.Thanks Sue"
"Very nice muffin! Especially good for people who like a little sweeter cranberry muffin. I was lazy and didn't chop my fresh cranberries. My dough was so thick and moist, I was a little worried, but they turned out perfect. Easy to make and nice to share at holiday time."
"These were good I too added some cinnomon, definately was needed. Also had to add some water cause the batter was too dry but it could be the elevation here. They are a recipe I will make again & again."
"These are very tender mufins with a nice balance between the cranberry & the orange flavors. I left out the nuts in deference to dd & baked them for 16 minutes in mini muffin pans. Thanks, Sue!"
"Very similar to the recipe I use. (Mine has butter instead of oil and a tad more salt and zest in it) They are incredibly yummy! They are they type of muffin that when you haven't had them for a while you start to crave them. I've used dried cranberries when out of fresh but cut the amount in half. Once I omitted the cranberries and added 1 tsp. cinnamon instead, also good."
