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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 24, 2012

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!)
