Cranberry Muffins

I was asked to bake some muffins for our Christmas Ornament & Breakfast gathering this past Saturday, my first thought was to bake cranberry muffins. I used bake cranberry quick breads every Christmas but had stopped baking them several years ago. While I will always love my cranberry bread recipe, I also like to try new recipes :)  And I found this recipe from Taste Of Home here supposedly award winning recipe.

I have to agree, these muffins were so crumbly and light tasting, crowd pleasing .. I thought ;) . It will work great for breakfast or tea time treats and especially looks very festive for Christmas!

1 cup fresh cranberries, quartered
8 tablespoons sugar
1-3/4 cups self raising baking flour
1 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil


1. Sprinkle cranberries with 2 tablespoons sugar; set aside.
2. Measure flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
3. In the mixer, beat oil and remaining tablespoons sugar.
4. Add egg to mixer.
5. Alternate milk and flour mixture to mixer.
6. Scoop 1/3 of cranberries and add to mixer and mix well.
7. Fill (paper lined) standard muffin cups. Sprinkle evenly with cranberries on each muffin and with cinnamon-sugar.
8. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden stick comes out clean.

Yield: 12 standard-size.
