Cranberry Spice Muffins

For a festive breakfast while my step-daughter was visiting, I customized a basic muffin recipe with flavors of the season.  Served alongside cheesy scrambled eggs and thick-cut bacon, they were a great way to start the day!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 teaspoons apple pie spice


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spritz a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick buttery spray.
  • Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and apple pie spice in a large bowl.  Make a well in the center.
  • In a small bowl, beat egg with a fork.
  • Stir in milk and oil.
  • Pour liquid mixture into flour mixture.
  • Stir until moistened but do not beat.  Batter will be lumpy.
  • Fold in dried cranberries.
  • Pour into muffin cups.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
