Reviews for Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins
"These are so delicious. They do not last in my house! I substitute the sugar for 1 C Splenda and 1C unsweetened Apple sauce. Then I top each muffin with a streusel. Makes about 18-20 muffins."
"Made these for a fall bake sale and they were a hit!I cut the sugar in half and added some applesauce."
"I made these for our weekly ingredient challenge and this week's challenge was pumpkin. It had to be a recipe that we had never tried before. This recipe is average. I would have rated it higher; however, I have a better pumpkin muffin recipe that I enjoy using."
"Delicious! Such a pretty muffin too. Next time I intend to cut the sugar back like some of the other reviews suggested and add more cranberries."
"Easy and wonderful."
"Yum!! Even better the next day :)"
"Soft, moist and delicious. I followed the recipe except I used only 1 cup sugar, ½ cup fresh cranberries and ½ cup dried cranberries. It turned out just the way we liked it. Thanks for sharing."
"We loved this recipe. I used dried cranberries and did not chop them. I doubled the recipe and added an additional cup of cranberries and used a 15 oz can of pumpkin. I made some into individual small loaves to give away and the rest into muffins. FYI: You'll need a large bowl if you double the recipe. Definitely a keeper!"
"These are delicious and the addition of the tart cranberries is perfect. Added bonus-Your house will smell fabulous while these are baking."
"Easy to make, these muffins are very moist and tasty! I did as someone else suggested and just added the entire can of pumpkin and cut back just a little on the oil. Next time, however, I think I will add just a bit more of the pumpkin pie spice. I added some chopped walnuts, and instead of chopping the cranberries, I left them whole, which adds a nice burst of flavor when you bite into them. Even my husband, who isn't a big fan of pumpkin asked for more. This recipe is staying in my box."
