Bran and Cranberry Buttermilk Muffins

These easay to make and inexpensive Bran and Cranberry Buttermilk Muffins take a traditional recipe and adds beautiful dried cranberries.

Warmed just to the touch with a pat of butter, really there is nothing better. The sweet nuttiness is perfect along side a cup of tea or a fresh berry smoothie for a quick breakfast.

If you do not have buttermilk on hand you can make your own with millk and either vinegar or lemon juice. Take a 1 cup measuring cup and add a generous 1 tablespoon measure of vinegar or the lemon juice. Top the cup off with milk, stir gently and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Use in place of the buttermilk.

 

Note: I always use liners when I make muffins or cupcakes. Every time I have ever baked without them I have issues with getting them out of the tins.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
