Lemon-Cranberry Muffins

January/February 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4 (136 votes)

These lemony cranberry-studded muffins crunch lightly with cornmeal and are topped with a kiss of sugared lemon zest. They’re great warm from the oven, but also keep well for a few days and freeze beautifully.

Delicious!

I've never heard of a lemon cranberry muffin, just orange cranberry, the tried-and-true combination. But as I am a lemon fanatic, these really hit the spot. I didn't do the cornmeal because it sounded weird (I subbed in white flour) and they turned out well, but after reading the reviews, I plan to try them with cornmeal next time.

light and crunchy

These muffins turned out a lot more like cornbread than a traditional muffin but they are delicious none the less. They are not overly sweet, making the perfect breakfast or snack.

These muffins were wonderful!! I had white cornmeal (I don't know if it makes a difference from yellow cornmeal). I didn't have actual lemon, so I had to omit the zest and just used the lemon juice in my fridge (I did 3 tablespoons). They came out amazing, so I can only imagine how wonderful they would be with lemon zest!! The cornmeal is a very nice touch which adds great texture to the muffin. I am going to try cornmeal in other muffins recipes I have. I made them into mini muffins which yielded 38.
I would recommend these to anyone and will definitely make these again!!

I followed the directions for these exactly and the end result was a little disappointing. They were crumbly and flat on top ... like they didn't rise or something. Flavour is great tho ... I will try again. Perhaps I made a misstep, but I don't think so.

I made these muffins and they are not super sweet but they are good and moist. I even forgot to add the egg and they still came out ok.
