Apple and Cranberry Buttermilk Muffins

It’s a terrible thing getting a new oven – all you want to do is bake and bake some more.  Naturally, lots of these baked goodies would have to be something in cupcake form so back to Woolies I go – all in the name of experimenting you see.  Should we go sweet or should we go savoury – cater for both and decide later was a good choice and amongst the goodies that made their way into our trolley were apples and cranberries, which were used for these lovely moist muffins.

  2. Oooh these look yummy, 2 of my 5 a day, great! :0)
    Good to hear you have a new oven, lots of lovely recipes for us readers then! Happy baking! Jenny

  3. I’ve made cookies with cranberries, but never muffins. I bet my kiddos would really enjoy this. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Ooh lovely! We are off on a long road trip on Saturday and am starting to think about little gorgeous treats I can pack to take along for our “pit stops”…these would be perfect! Glad you´re enjoying the new oven 🙂

  5. I love the combo of apples and cranberries. I’m so excited that we’re going into cranberry season again soon. Well, I will miss summer…but there are so many good fall dishes. I’m going to remember this recipe for after we visit the apple orchard this fall. 🙂

    • Visiting an apple orchard must be great fun, especially with Mr N and Miss A. I am looking forward to us going into summer – soon, I hope, the weather has been a little odd lately. Have a happy day. 🙂
