Hello and happy Monday! If you’re not too excited about Monday, how about moist, delicious and flavor-packed muffins to brighten your day and get your week off to a good start? I really love the flavor combination of orange and cranberry, and I’ve been wanting to post a muffin recipe to the blog. This muffin recipe seemed like a natural lead-in for many more muffin recipes to come. I love breads of all kinds, but when I need a freshly-baked bread in a hurry then of course quick breads are the way to go.
I decided to leaved the muffin tops “bare-faced” and didn’t include a topping. The muffins themselves are so flavorful with the addition of the Craisins that I didn’t think they needed anything else. Also, I didn’t want to add any additional calories. However, if you would like, I think they would be great with a chopped nut topping – like walnuts or pecans.
