Cranberry Nut Muffins
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Lacking in flavor. Looked at modifications others have done with vanilla, orange zest and spices. Will try again but based on this first attempt, going to look for another cranberry muffin recipe before I make this one again
The muffin is good but a little flour taste to it. I used frozen cranberries instead of fresh sine I made these in the summer. I also used walnuts instead of pecans. I will make these again just might change oil for butter or applesauce and possible cut the amount of flour or try it with whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.
Really good muffin.I added half teaspoon of orange extract..It popped the flavor for us..This is a keeper.
Very light and tasty, perfect, made them with no changes
Yummmm! I liked the idea of using orange juice in a baked goods recipe, and you don't need any white sugar. I did make a few swaps, butter for the oil, fresh squeezed Oj and a teaspoon of orange zest, I added a hearty sprinkle of cinnamon to the flour, a half tsp of salt, and a quarter teaspoon each of vanilla & almond extracts. The WHOLE house smelled delicious, and even the kids loved them, who I normally can't get to eat anything baked unless it contains chocolate. Good stuff!
I own a b and b, and when my guests have special diets, I try to make something nice for them. These were for a guest who is vegan but eats eggs and does not like to use any refined sugar. I made them with no sugar, added a diced apple, and a bit of almond meal instead of some of the flour, and she loved them! They were not, of course, very sweet for tastes that are accustomed to sugar but they were very good- the orange juice is sweet. I had one and think they are very good. Now I will make some for my mother.Other changes to the recipe were a half cup of whole wheat flour instead of a half cup of the all purpose, using dried cranberries, adding the zest of one orange, using partly pecans and part walnuts, and a half teaspoon of baking soda to utilize the acidity of the orange juice as a leavening. All othre ingredients were the same.I baked them on 350 by mistake, no problem, for a little longer. Used only 9 muffin cups for bigger muffins.
Easy to make. I switched walnuts for pecans and loved them.
Make them at least 1? a week. Everyone loves them!
Amazing muffins! With or without the nuts. Yum!
They were good but I don't think great. They were not very sweet. A nice muffin for breakfast.
