My muffins (see photo above)Â turned out extra dark in color because I ran out of white sugar and used brown. They were still delicious!
These muffins are SO delicious! They are literally bursting with beautiful red cranberries, which give a delightful tangy taste. They're very spicy, very fruity, a bit tangy, and not too sweet: a perfect combination! These muffins will leave you wishing cranberries were on sale all year 'round! My rating: 10/10
