    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 - The tartness of the cranberries is balanced by the sweetness and richness of the eggnog. Talk about a perfect flavor combination! 


    For the Muffins:

    • 2 cups flour
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1 egg
    • 3/4 cup eggnog
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1 cup fresh cranberries

    For the Crumb Topping:

    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 5 tbsp flour
    • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
    • 4 tbsp unsalted butter (cold, cut into pieces)


    • 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.
