MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2014

I made the dried cranberry variation suggested by the editors and found that the muffin cups needed to be filled half-full, not three-quarters full, for a yield of 6. They rose well, were moist and looked pretty. But, I could taste a baking soda flavor, which I didn't care for.
