Fresh Cranberry Orange Muffins

This cranberry orange muffin recipe makes tall, fluffy muffins that are moist and delicious, made with fresh cranberries and orange zest, they are perfect for the holidays!
Hello, friends! I have here a great recipe for you with fresh cranberries! You may perhaps remember this recipe for Cranberry Orange Cream Cheese Crumble Bars, which I made back in '17. They will always be one of my absolute favorites. You cannot beat the festive flavor of fresh cranberries and orange zest.

This recipe I have here for you today is pretty much the marriage of those cranberry orange bars and my Perfect Blueberry Muffins. As you may recall, my sister and I worked for many weeks making approximately one billion batches of muffins until we had our recipe perfect. That was 5 years ago before I was married and had three toddlers, in case you were wondering.
 

 Oh look, there's one of them now. 
 
I was hiding in my pantry (which actually has surprisingly good lighting) to take these photos. But of course, it does not take my kids very long to sniff out sugar (they are related to me afterall), so before long, they were reaching their chubby hands in front of my camera, snatching sugared cranberries to lick and devouring all the sugary tops off of my muffins.
Speaking of muffin tops, have you ever seen such lovely, tall, fluffy muffin tops? 
 

 
 
How do you make big, tall muffin tops?

Well, I'm glad you asked. Just fill those muffin liners right to the top. Please, don't be shy. These will rise beautifully as they bake and create the muffin top of your dreams.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Place eight muffin liners in a muffin pan.
  2. Combine the sugar, egg, oil, milk, vanilla, and orange zest in a bowl and stir until well combined.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. I stir the baking powder and salt into the flour right on top of the wet ingredients so I don't have to get out another bowl. Once the baking powder and salt are pretty well distributed in the flour, stir them into the wet ingredients until combined. Don't over-mix. Just stir until it's no longer lumpy.
  4. Stir in the sour cream just until well distributed. Fold in the cranberries (I left about half for the top so some would be visible on the crown of the muffin).
  5. Evenly distribute the batter in the muffin tin. If you are making 8 high crowned muffins, you will be filling them all the way to the top. If you want to make shorter muffins you can fill 12. If you saved some cranberries for the top, place them on now. Sprinkle the tops with the 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  6. Bake muffins for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
