My mother eats a muffin every day for breakfast and I have come up with several different kinds for her but this is her favorite kind that I have made.

These cranberry orange muffins will be a delicious treat to wake up to. They're bursting with citrus flavor. Perfectly sweet, with little bits of tart cranberries throughout, these muffins are just as good as anything you'd find at a bakery. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
