Cranberry Lemon Muffins

Cranberry Lemon Muffins are a delicious treat. When I am looking for a tangy and sweet muffin that is a bit unusual, this is the perfect recipe. These muffins can be eaten while warm from the oven, and then enjoy them over the next few days. Add these amazing muffins to brunch or as a simple breakfast.
