Cranberry Muffins Recipe | Muffins with Fresh Cranberries

Fresh cranberry Muffins , Recipes with fresh cranberries

Today I am here with Fresh Cranberry Muffins recipe. I must admit at our home, we all love cranberries- be it fresh or dried. But here in UK I couldn't get fresh cranberries at all, except during Christmas time. I got super excited seeing them and got it then and had made Spiced cranberry cake for New year and had saved some cranberries for later and baked these muffins. My children loved it so much. But since fresh cranberries may not be available through out the year, it can be replaced with dried cranberries too.
