There’s Something About Muffins

Orange Cranberry Muffins

There was a bakery back in Ogunquit Maine, that sold the most delicous muffins. They were photo perfect, and the size of 1/2 loaf of bread (ok may be not THAT big). You could easily share one with a friend and both feel satisfied. 

I loved those muffins. Ever since those days, during my home cooking adventures on the farm, those muffins were the catalyst for experimenting with flavors and textures. My muffins are never as pretty, they are sort of misshapen and squishy looking; but the flavors have been a big hit over the years. 

Today’s recipe is Cranberry Orange Muffins. These started from a simple muffin recipe in the Betty Crocker Cookbook, and I jazzed them up with a few extra flavors. 

Start with your favorite muffin recipe. Mine are based on the plain muffin recipe from Betty Crocker recipes. 

I have to double, since there are 7 of us. I added a hint of nutmeg, the zest from one medium orange and 2 cups of cranberries that I had in the freezer, and then chopped right before adding.

I changed the crumble on top from white sugar to brown and voila!
