One of my favorites! Reminds me of the cranberry orange muffins you buy at the local coffee shops. But this one doesn't cost you an arm and a leg! LOL

When cranberries are in season I buy a bunch and freeze them right in the bags. When I need them I just thaw and chop.

I adjusted this recipe so you get a true orange flavor with the OJ and zest. And using oil instead of butter gives a moist consistency.
