Cranberry Orange Muffins with Orange Crumble Topping were introduced to us in 2016 during the Holiday Blogger Challenge. Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen created these delicious muffins as an entry in the Baking category of the competition. We love making these muffins! They’re great to bring to a friends house or into the office for meeting days. The crumble topping takes these muffins to the next level. We hope you enjoy making and eating these as much as we do!
