Easy to Make Muffins

Making these muffins is simple and fast.  The egg, granulated sugar, and brown sugar are beaten together in a bowl, then the oil, sour cream, and orange zest is added to the mix.

The dry ingredients are then added to the mix and then the dried cranberries are stirred in.

The muffin batter is spooned evenly among 12 muffin liners, filling them to the top.

Next, the streusel topping is added on top of the batter, making sure to gently press it into the muffins so that it sticks and doesn’t fall off the muffins.

Dried cranberries and white chocolate chips are added on top of the streusel to finish these muffins off.

After baking these muffins according to the directions, you can choose to add more dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.
