Cinnamon, Cranberry and Walnut Christmas Muffins

Although school holidays have only just started, already many of us are beginning to hear to all too familiar cry of “I’m bored!” Well we are here to help with a great Christmas Muffin recipe that’s so easy the kids can almost make it all by themselves!

These muffins are delicious any time of the year, but are also a perfect treat to leave out for Santa on Christmas Eve.

You will need:

2 1/2 cups of self raising flour
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2/3 cup of soft brown sugar
1 1/3 cups of milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
150g of unsalted butter that has been melted and cooled
1/2 cup of walnuts chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup of dried cranberries

Let’s put it together!

Preheat your oven to 190 degrees and line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases – you can find Christmas themed paper cases at most supermarkets or variety stores. Set the tray aside until needed.

Place the butter in a microwave safe bowl and cook for 30 second spurts until it has melted. Remove from the microwave and set aside to cool.

Cut the walnuts into small pieces and set aside until needed.

Sift the flour and cinnamon together into a large bowl. Add the brown sugar, chopped walnuts and dried cranberries and stir with a metal spoon to combine and make a well in the centre.

In a jug, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla, before pouring into the well. Add the melted butter and using a metal spoon, gently fold the ingredients together until they are just combined. Be careful to not over mix, you want the mixture to still have a few lumps.

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, you can sprinkle a little extra cinnamon over the top if you like.
Place the muffin tray into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins have risen slightly, are golden and cooked through when tested with a skewer.cranberry and walnut

Remove the tray from the oven and allow the muffins to cool for a five minutes before transferring to a wire tray to cool completely.

Enjoy!
