These muffins are delicious all of my family and friends loved them! I substituted the truvia baking blend for regular granulated white sugar and I used 2/3 cup sugar instead of 1/3 cup truvia baking blend! I used Craisins and just re-hydrated them before chopping them up and adding them to the mixture! Read More

In a rush I made this with self-rising flour....oops. It came out fairly salty but still edible so if topped with cream cheese frosting it would actually balance out really well. I didn't quite understand why baking soda salt AND baking powder were required but went with it anyway. I also didn't have access to fresh berries so had to go with sweetened dried instead. I would recommend a more intense orange flavor and maybe more cranberries. Read More

I made this recipe substituting 1 cup of Splenda for 1/3 cup of Truvia (Splenda measures the same as sugar) butter-flavored Crisco and whole wheat flour to make it a bit more healthy. These are some of the best muffins I've ever had and they were low on guilt! I'll definitely be making these again! Read More

This was not a hard Recipe to make. I used 2/3 cup of Sugar 1/2 cup of Whole Milk Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice and Fresh Grated Orange Peel and Fresh Chopped Cranberries. The Muffin with its perfect crowns (you need to make sure that your Flour Baking Powder and Baking Soda are fresh) turned out so beautiful and delicious. Read More

These were pretty good! I used 2/3 cup granulated sugar as recommended by another reviewer as well as dried cranberries. They were a little bit dry but the flavor was terrific! I would definitely make these again. Read More
