Reviews for Apple Cranberry Muffins
"I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream because that's what I had, and also chopped, fresh cranberries. These muffins are really good. Not great, but my favorite in the world is blueberry."
"OMG PERFECT. I USED CRANBERRIES AND RAISINS THAT I KEPT IN WATER AND JUCY. I PUT THEM IN THE FREEZER AND USE WHEN I bake. THE MUFFINS ARE FANTASTIC. THANK YOU FOR THE RECIPE. WHAT DOES THE 12 OZ OF GREEK YOGURT DO FOR THE MUFFIN? I USED DELICIOUS LEMON GREEK YOGURT. SO SO GOOD. IT ALL CAME OUT SO MOIST AND FRUITTY. AND I LET THE RAISINS CARAMELIZE A BIT ON THE EDGES AND WOW. A FAVORITE FOR ME NOW."
"Yummy! I made a few changes, and it turned out great. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream, and made it with chopped fresh cranberries. I added about 1/3 cup sugar because dried cranberries are sweetened."
"I made this recipe twice in one week and love it! I made just a couple of changes. I did not have allspice or cloves, so I added an extra tsp. of cinnamon. Also, I mixed the dried cranberries into the dry flour mix instead of folding them in at the end. Next time, I think I will try to add the applies this way too. This way the batter won't have to be mixed as much."
"These tasted great! I made them last night and the family couldn't wait for them to cool, the topping put a nice crust on it. I plan on freezing a few for a quick grab, reheat, and go. I will be making these again!"
"I made these at Christmas time and again tonight...They are wonderful! I used thawed cranberries from my freezer and added walnuts...Delicious!"
