Each muffin is dotted with bright red cranberries and flavored with a hint of orange. The cake-like texture of this not-too-sweet muffin is perfect to serve warm for breakfast. Leave cranberries in the freezer until just before using. This prevents them from “bleeding” into the bread. Sprinkle a little granulated sugar on top, just before baking, to help them brown.
