Bakery Style Cranberry Streusel Muffins


I’m having an intervention with myself tonight. The kids and I spent two and a half hours in the mall. We shopped at Old Navy, Claires, the Pretzelmaker. It totally turned me hardcore. I’ve been talking like a Valley Girl ever since we got home, dropping words like “shiznit” and “holla” and “totally” as if I’m kickin’ it at the rollerrink on a Saturday night, listening to Justin Beiber, and sucking down a Dr. Pepper.

It’s not pretty.

Therefore, I have decided to forego any detailed posting tonight in hopes that I will save your eyes from reading the mall-inspired vocabulary that my thirtysomething self absorbed today. You’ll thank me for it tomorrow.




Bakery-Style Cranberry Streusel Muffins


For the Muffins:
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cup flour
1/4 cup milk
Juice & zest of 1 orange

For the Streusel:
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar


For the Muffins:
In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil and brown sugar until well mixed. Add the remaining ingredients and stir them just until mixed. Fold in 2 cups of fresh cranberries, or any other fresh berry you prefer. In a second bowl, use a fork to mix all the ingredients together until crumbly. Spoon the batter into giant muffin cups, top with streusel, and bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 30-32 minutes, or until the center of the muffin is fully cooked and springs back when touched lightly with your finger. Cool, devour, enjoy!

    These were really good, but next time I'll use fewer cranberries. Mine turned out too tart, but still delicious.

    Hello there! I made these but the topping is hard… Was I mistaken to think the topping would be fluffy? I did the measurements is called for. It’s still good but y presentation looks “ok”. They’re good though! Definitely a soft and moist muffin.

    Do you really use flour and white sugar for the streusel? I tried this and it turned into a paste instead of crumbly. I have better luck with oatmeal and brown sugar.
