Quick and easy Cranberry & Nut Muffins Recipe with Cranberry Sauce topping!
I made these for a church pot luck and they were such a hit! We received a few bags of cranberries from a friend and I wanted to find something good to make with them. I found a great recipe and tweaked it a little to make the perfect cranberry muffins!
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 cups Cranberries, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Mix sugar and butter together in a medium mixing bowl until completely blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a separate medium mixing bowl. Add this alternately with the milk to the butter mixture. Stir in nuts and cranberries. Spoon into 12 paper-lined muffin cups, filling 3/4 full with batter.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 12 muffins.
1 Cup Cranberry’s Mashed, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp. lemon juice and 2 tsp. water. Cook on low for 10 minutes. Enjoy!!
