Cranberry Almond Muffin Recipe

Cranberry Almond Muffins

This is a perfect Winter muffin recipe. Adding vinegar to the milk will curdle it, creating a buttermilk. This helps leaven the muffins resulting in a fluffier, lighter texture. Substitute frozen blueberries instead of cranberries or orange zest instead of lemon zest for other delicious spins on this recipe.
