    I made these tonight for breakfast for the upcoming week. I doubled the recipe, and used 1/2 dried cranberries, and half dried cherries, and sprinkled generously with cinnamon sugar before baking. They were super simple, went together quickly, and turned out fluffy and delicious. I might introduce another flavor next time, maybe orange, and nuts would be terrific in these muffins as well. Next time, I may add a bit more brown sugar, they were perfect for me, but my daughter likes her muffins a bit sweeter. I will use this recipe a hundred different ways, thank you so much!

    These are really good! Moist & chock full of cranberries. They are great warm with butter or cold & plain.

    These were a very good muffin, a little more hearty and dense than your normal muffin, and I loved the fact that they were not overly sweet (even with the sprinkling of cinnamon sugar I topped them with before baking). I used about an even third of cranberries, tart cherries and raisins as I ran out of the cranberries ( I always run out of them, I need to buy them in bulk I think). My husband adored them with a schmeer of butter along with his coffee. They are so easy to make I am sure they will be gracing our table often.
