Cranberries and eggnog are quintessential flavors of the holiday season. I decided to marry the two and create a super moist and flavorful muffin. The tartness of the cranberries is balanced by the sweetness and richness of the eggnog. Talk about a perfect flavor combination. Though, I will admit that the crumb topping is my favorite part.

Let’s get baking:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pans with paper liners. Now you’re ready to make the muffin batter. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. In a medium bowl, combine the egg, eggnog, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Add this wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until just combined. Gently stir in the cranberries.

To make the topping, combine the sugar, flour, and nutmeg in a small bowl; whisk to blend. Add the butter pieces and cut them in with a pastry blender or a fork until the texture resembles wet sand.

Next, fill the lined muffins tins 3/4 full of batter. Then top with crumb topping. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

That’s it! Let them cool (or don’t) and enjoy! 

Have a fab weekend everyone!
