Cranberry Orange Muffins

Cranberry Orange Muffins
I have a confession to make. I’ve never made muffins. It’s not that I’m muffin phobic or anti-muffins but they’ve never been interesting enough to warrant the time and energy. Since one of my goals for the new year is to try new things, I figured it was time to mark them off my culinary to do list.

These muffins remind me of ones I’ve had at an unnamed overpriced national coffee shop chain. They aren’t overly sweet and have a nice citrusy tanginess that goes well with cranberries. If you can’t find fresh cranberries, you could use dried but plump them first by soaking them in some hot water for about 10 minutes. Don’t skip sprinkling sugar on top. You’ll need that extra sugar to offset the tartness of the cranberries. Turbinato would also work well.
