JoAnn Fluke's Cranberry Muffins

These are a great fall muffin, and my kids loved these.  I found them in one of JoAnne Fluke's books, and these are simple and quick to throw together.  Noah helped me.  I made 23 muffins, and each muffin was 213 calories.  Owen and Noah gave them a perfect 10, and I gave them a 9, I would've like a little almond or vanilla flavor in these.  
Cranberry Muffins 

Preheat oven to 375.
¾ c melted butter 
1 c white sugar 
2 beaten eggs 
2 t baking powder 
½ t salt
1 c dried cranberries 
2 ¼ c flour 
½ c milk 
½ c whole berry cranberry sauce 
Crumb Topping:
½ c sugar 
1/3 c flour 
¼ c butter softened 

Line muffin tins.  Put cranberries in the melted butter and set aside to cool.  Mix together sugar, baking powder, eggs, and salt.  Stir in the butter and cranberries.  Add ½ the flour mixture, then ½ the milk.  Add the rest of the flour mixture then the rest of the milk.  Stir in the cranberry sauce.  Fill tins ¾ of the way full then add the crumb topping.  To make crumb topping mix together sugar and flour, then cut in the butter.  Bake for 20-30 minutes, cool for 30 minutes, then remove from pans.

  1. I am not sure about the whole cranberry sauce? Perhaps it is just like making blueberry pie filling or cherry; you cook some of them and use raw ones, too. This sounds really good and we really like muffins. Love mom
