Bursting with cranberries and finished with an orange glaze, these Glazed Cranberry Orange Muffins are the perfect sweet to add to your holiday brunches.
Breakfast seems to get forgotten around the holidays with all of the focus being on the main meal. But when dinner isn’t until 4:00 and you have a house full of guests, forgetting about breakfast just isn’t going to work. That’s why I bake these Cranberry Orange Muffins ahead of time and pop them in the freezer. Glaze them when they thaw, and you have a sweet treat that is full of holiday flavors.
Cranberries are one of my favorite fruits for baked goods; they are not too sweet and add a great pop of color to the table. Plus when you drizzle some orange glaze on top, you pretty much have a match made in heaven.
Plus you won’t believe how easy these Glazed Cranberry Orange Muffins are to make. They only use one bowl and can easily be done the morning of brunch. Now the method for measuring the liquids in this muffin recipe is a little different, so be sure to read the instructions thoroughly before you start. This measuring cup guarantees me perfect muffins every time. And don’t worry if you’re a planner because they freeze beautifully. Just wait to drizzle with glaze until you serve them. Add some easy Cheesy, Ham and Spinach Egg Cups and breakfast is served.
