A long time ago in a land far away my husband and I discovered the most delicious morsel of food one ever did eat. It was Costco Cranberry Orange Loaf, forget the fact that I had zero self-control around it, and they only sold it in three loaf packs, that was some seriously tasty stuff. We returned to buy more, never to find it again. How disappointing! I have been on the search all these years to find a replica recipe. This isn’t it. However it still had that delicious cranberry orange flavor that always remind of christmas it didn’t quite have the amazing moistness (kind of a weird word, but I couldn’t think of anything better) of the Costco loaf. I will keep on my bread hunt and until then I will eat these muffins.
