These nice, light muffins, studded with cranberries, have a splash of orange flavor. They're so simple to fix, my husband and I enjoy one for breakfast almost every morning. —Sara Eichenlaub, Burlington, Ontario

"I doubled this recipe and made mini muffins for the kids to take to school for treats. I used half all purpose flour, and half whole wheat flour. I also added some orange zest and upped the sugar by 1/4 cup.

These turned out beautifully! This will become a regular muffin in our house."

"I just made these and I really enjoyed them. I add some golden raisins to cranberry muffins . My family enjoys the contrast between the tangy cranberries and the sweet golden raisins"

"I really like the taste of the muffins but found that I wanted them to rise more. They were a little flat for muffins. I am just wondering what could be done to make them rise so that the top is a little more rounded?"

"Delicious and healthy! I added some grated orange rind and chopped walnuts. Have shared with friends who also like them very much. Thank you, Sara, for a wonderful recipe."

"I also converted to gluten free using some almond flour in my flour blend and dried cranberries. Worked beautifully!"

"Is this recipe shown correctly? I followed it, and ended up with soup. I added more flour, but wasn't sure how much to add. My batter was still a little thinner than usual. A little research told me that for muffins, "The general ratio of flour to liquid is generally 2:1". (http://www.craftybaking.com/how-baking-works)

I baked them for about 25 min at 400. The flavour was good, but I'd like to know what went wrong. One and half cups liquid to 2 cups flour sure sounds like a lot!
Any help out there?"

"I converted this to a gluten free recipe and it came out delicious! I can only imagine that making it as stated would be just as good. Excellent taste and texture. (Oh, I did change the sugar content because I have one child that finds cranberries VERY sour. I use 1/4 c sugar and 1/4 c Splenda to ramp the sweet up a bit. Just perfect!)"
