Cranberry Eggnog Muffins
Cook's Notes: These muffins are the perfect holiday morning treat: tart cranberries, sweet eggnog, walnuts and hints of cinnamon all baked together. Just perfection! And don't forget to serve them with a mug of hot coffee or tea.  
Recipe makes 15 muffins.

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Saigon cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 cup eggnog traditional or light
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh cranberries (halved) mixed with 2 TB. sugar and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 TB. turbinado sugar or Sprinkles  (white sparkling sugar) I found this container at Michaels in the baking section
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line muffin pans with paper liners.
  • In a bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg  and cinnamon. 
  • In a large bowl beat together eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract. Add the eggnog and whisk to combine. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in sugared cinnamon cranberries and walnuts.

  • Cool briefly on a wire rack and serve warm.

  1. Those muffins sound delicious. Who thinks up these recipes? I find this one especially creative. The only thing that sounds difficult is cutting all those cranberries in half.
