‘Tis the season for baking, right? Hello, friends of I heart Nap Time! I am really excited to be here today. I’m a huge fan of both Christmas and baking so I can’t think of a place I’d rather be this week. Plus, isn’t Jamielyn the sweetest thing ever? Love her! 

If we haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is Michael and I’m a blogger over at Inspired by Charm. I blog about pretty much everything, including baking, DIY projects, home decor ideas, gardening, and so much more! Once you have checked out this recipe, hop on over and say hi!

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. 

So if you are planning any holiday breakfasts, need a quick gift, or just want to have some sweets on hand – give these muffins a try! You won’t be disappointed! 

 

Crumb Topped Cranberry Eggnog Muffins {Recipe}

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • For the crumb topping:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    I found this recipe via Pinterest last Christmas. I made them for my husband, who absolutely LOVED them. As soon as he saw eggnog in the store this year he started asking me to make more. This has definitely become a Christmas time tradition in my family!
