Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 7 tbsp sugar 
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cup cranapple juice
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries coarsely chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Grease twelve 2-1/2" muffin cups or line with baking cups; set aside.
  • To prepare streusel topping, combine 3 tablespoons of the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut in 2 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.
  • To prepare muffins, combine remaining flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.
  • In another bowl whisk egg, juice and oil together. Pour egg mixture all at once into flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in chopped cranberries.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Sprinkle streusel topping over muffin batter in cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden and a wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. 
  • Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups; serve warm. 

Notes

To cut back on sugar and fat simple omit step 2, adjusting the flour accordingly in step 3.  The muffins are very good without the topping as well.
