Delicious muffins Sue, as expected. These lovely muffins were perfect, tender, yet crunchy and crisp on the outside. They had so much flavor. I couldn't find fresh or frozen cranberries anywhere around here, so I used dried. They worked well in the recipe and were a nice pairing with the orange and walnuts. My dh is allergic to nuts so in his version I added a little coconut. Which he enjoyed vry much. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Best of 2014.

Lots of great flavor here. Orange and cranberry are a favorite combo. Only change I made was to bake 6 jumbo muffins instead of 12 regular size. For the nuts, I used pecans.

Delicious! A perfect blend of tart and sweet. I got 13 regular sized muffins from the recipe. Tagged for the Billboard game.
