Cranberry Egg Nog Muffins

It’s that time again…time for another Improv Cooking Challenge hosted by Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. This month’s ingredients were egg nog and cranberries. In all honesty, I absolutely hate egg nog. My husband loves the stuff and was so excited when I brought it home for this recipe challenge.

In choosing what recipe to try, the name of the game quickly became “How can I incorporate egg nog into a recipe so that I won’t be able to taste it and will actually enjoy the finished result?” Mission accomplished.

A quick search for a cranberry egg nog muffin recipe led me to an older post from one of my favorite food bloggers, Annie’s Eats. This was our first attempt at muffins and they turned out amazingly well. I think the slightly crunchy streusel topping really adds to the flavor of these muffins.
