Good starting point but should modify
As others suggested this recipe should be altered to be better. I added a bit of lemon extract and it tastes great!
Quick Cranberry Orange Rum Muffins
This is a good recipe. Good ratio og liquid ingredients to dry ingredients. I like the whole cranberries. This is a tasty recipe. I added 2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed orange juice and 2 teaspoons of rum extract to the muffin batter.i omitted the cinnamon from the muffin batter. I made a glaze using 1/4 cup of fresh orange juice, 1 teaspoon of rum extract and powdered sugar.
This bread is so bland and when I slice it it crumbles. So disappointing - I was sure Ocean Spray would do much better.
Delicious Recipe for the Holidays!
I made these into 12 muffins, adding 1/4 tsp salt, 3T more sugar, and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. If you're not a fan of nutmeg, either reduce the amount or omit it altogether. Adding a little orange zest would be delicious too. The recipe seems to be forgiving, so you could increase the nutrition content by swapping half of the all purpose flour for whole wheat, as the batter is very moist. Remember the flavor will vary, based on the brand of cranberry sauce you use. I tested the batter for sweetness before baking. I would definitely make these again.
Confirm recipes with seniors when you get them
Had a 15 year old recipe from my great aunt who always made this every year for Thanksgiving. She has severe dementia now, doesn't cook, so I couldn't confirm her ingredients on her hand written recipe..
I used a combination of her recipe ( add salt and 3/4 cup sugar, butter) with your recipe of baking powder and cinnamon. It's in the oven now. Hopefully it turns out ok.
