Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Lemon Cran Muffins
There is nothing like a good muffin in the morning.

My main muffin problem is that most of my recipes (at least the ones I haven't worn out) are either too rich, too healthy (a.k.a bland), or too savory for breakfast. I have a few muffins that I make regularly but I was looking for something new.

Of course the first place I looked was on food blogs. I found a great recipe on Weekly Dish under Jennifer's muffin category. The recipe sounded simple and used buttermilk (truly the best baking ingredient besides chocolate). They were such a hit with my husband and mother-in-law that I made them again a week later. I wouldn't be surprised if I make them yet again when my parents come to visit this weekend. They're so easy yet so moist and divine. It's a very versatile recipe, too. This past time I added fresh blueberries and you could add practically any fruit (dried or fresh) that you like. Or skip the fruit and just add chocolate.

These look delicious. I love muffins and I've never tried a recipe with buttermilk, I really need to. Hope all is well with you, hope we can get together soon!

Oh, I should try to make some new muffins for Muffin Monday when I get back from my trip. Thanks, Jef. Dianka, hopefully we can get together in May. You should definitely try this recipe. It's easy and the muffins are so moist!
