I like to bake with cranberries in any form fresh, frozen or dried. Fall means adding little cranberries in everything for me. I like the tart cranberries gives their ultimate taste and flavor when they are baked. For cakes and muffins I like to use fresh or frozen. For cookies and bread I like to use dried cranberries. I have to try tart and pie with cranberries that is my do list. Similarly they are in their best form when you mix with alcohol. I made cranberry orange muffins with orange crumble topping using frozen cranberries from Cape Cod Select Premium Cranberries
I received two packets as sample from them for their holiday recipe challenge. They are going to select and try few recipes if they select winner get some prize. I don’t know I am going to win their challenge. But I already win the recipe challenge according to my daughter and hubby. He is usually acts as tester only test few bites and declare it is good or bad. He told it is excellent hard to get excellent word from him. You can find Cape Cod Select Premium Cranberries from these stores look at frozen sections.
Earlier I tried Cranberry coffee cake which I love it, one of the best recipes which I got from my grocery store’s recipe list. Initially plan to make cranberry pound cake, but later changed the idea to make this cranberry orange muffins with orange crumble topping. Trust me these are best and addictive fell in love with them. I am going to make it more often.
This is my own recipe adapted from various sources. Now I found a secret ingredient to make the muffin soft, it is sour cream. When I add the muffin stay soft. I used orange along with cranberries as their union is always perfect. I used orange juice and orange zest both in the batter as well as crumble. I decide to cut big cranberries into two and small one used just as such. This step doesn’t do any harm and cranberry doesn’t bleed. If you don’t want those steps simply skip it.
Give it a try you will like it. You need these ingredients to make these delicious muffins.
Pin it for later
Disclosure: I received the samples from Cape cod select however all the opinion are mine.3
