Eggnog Cranberry Muffins

Are you wondering what to make for Christmas morning breakfast??
I have the answer for you, these Eggnog Cranberry Muffins!

They are tender and moist and taste like Christmas YUM!

What you need,

6 tbsp. butter, melted
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup eggnog
½ tsp. vanilla
1 1/8 cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¾ cup fresh cranberries, chopped

For the topping,
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. butter, at room temperature

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a muffin cup with festive holiday paper liners.

In a large bowl combine the butter and sugar until well mixed.
Add the egg, eggnog and vanilla and stir to combine.

Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix until just combined, don’t over mix.

Gently fold in the cranberries.

To make the topping, combine the flour, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and butter in a small bowl. Using a fork combine the mixture until it resembles fluffy crumbs.

Divide the batter between the muffin cups. Sprinkle on the topping.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool the muffins in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days, or they freeze well too.

These lovely little muffins are delicious! Even if you don’t make them for Christmas morning they would make a great breakfast any day of the month!
