Reviews for Cranberry Gingerbread Muffins
"I'm always on the lookout for muffin recipes that don't include insane amounts of sugar and oil. This one sounded good, but it wasn't gingerbread-y enough. Lacked the *oomph* I think gingerbread should always have. The combination of gingerbread and cranberries, though, is worth working on. I think it could be a killer combo!"
"My inlaws liked it. I thought it was a little heavy. And it definitely makes more than a dozen. I usually make my muffins big and I got a dozen and a half."
"I made mini muffins for a church brunch. They taste better the 2nd day as flavors are blended."
