Cranberry and Blueberry Mini-Muffins

 

Cranberry and Bluebery Mini-Muffins

I have to start off by saying, these are my absolute favorite  go-to muffins.

I don’t think I’ve ever run into a person that has not enjoyed these…and I’ve been making these for years so I have a pretty large sample size. They’re soft and delicious and practically melt in your mouth…and the crumb topping…there aren’t even words for it.

I usually make these with just blueberries and full-size, but it being winter and having made these for a baby shower, I made mini-muffins and included cranberries and you know what? They tasted just as good with cranberries…and the fact that they were mini just meant that I could eat twice as many of them.

Cranberry and Blueberry Mini-Muffins

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup fresh cranberries

For the crumb topping
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder.
Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture.
Divide batter evenly into two mixing bowls.
Fold in blueberries into one bowl and cranberries into the other bowl.
Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

To Make Crumb Topping:
Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.

  1. I fell in love with cranberries last fall.

  2. I make muffins very similiar to this recipe, except with raspberries and blueberries and they are always delicious! And, you can’t go wrong with anything in “mini” form. 🙂
