Cranberry Apple Muffins
Cranberry Apple Muffins are a wonderful way to incorporate yummy ingredients of the season into your Thanksgiving Dinner! If you love a muffin with a lot of warm spices and chunky ingredients this recipe is for you! Enjoy any time of the year but during the holidays they are another way to add cranberries to the menu. Consider them for a buffet, breakfast, or a compliment to a stew or soup! The aroma is unbelievable while they are baking – then add a bit of butter and they are heavenly. And if cranberries are not your thing… then consider what you might substitute!
Easy Cranberry Apple Muffins
This recipe is a basic Muffin recipe with the addition of cranberries, apples, and carrots. It is easy to make taking less than an hour with baking time. My preference is to use fresh ingredients over dried ingredients. But you could try using dried cranberries to see how they work over fresh cranberries. As a disclaimer, I have not tried dried cranberries since I use the left over fresh cranberries. It is a substantial Cranberry Apple Muffin with so many ingredients.
A consideration is to make Cranberry Apple Mini-Muffins that might be better for a dinner party. Taste of Home recommends not changing the oven temperature when making mini-muffins but the baking time typically decrease. Mini-muffins may take 10 to 15 minutes depending upon the oven temperature. When converting from full size muffins to mini-muffins, I use my experience with how my oven bakes to determine a baking time. I start with a conservative time with checking for doneness.
