Cranberry Streusel Muffins

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 18 mins

I participated in a cookbooklet swap a few months ago and found a few books I did not remember I had. This recipe is from the Betty Crocker Bisquick cookbooklet and I believe it could be from October 1998. Cranberries are a favorite of mine and always on the lookout for good recipes.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease only the bottom of a 12 muffin baking pan or use paper liners. Mix the brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of Bisquick mix, set aside.
  2. In medium bowl, slightly beat milk, egg, and cranberry sauce. Add the 2 cups of Bisquick mix and the granulated sugar and mix until moistened.
  3. Fill muffin cups half full and sprinkle with brown sugar mixture that was put aside.
  4. Bake 18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and remove from pan, serve.

These are awesome!!! I made them today and everyone loved them I used my Texas muffin tin so I got 6 large muffins. I had one and my sister had one and then I left the remander on the side while I went out. When I got home there was 1 and half left, my hubby informed we had mice who could use knives. I loved the cranberry sauce addition as it was like having jam in certain areas where it was still gooey especially when they were still warm out of the oven. A great recipe loved the crumble topping and one that I will definitley be making again as it is so easy and tastes wonderful. Huge Thumbs up by all!! :)

These are tasty little muffins. They do not rise too much so they are a bit denser than other muffins but with the cranberry flavors and the bit of crumble topping it does not really matter. Great with a cup of coffee or tea! I froze some purposely too and took them out this morning and thawed in the microwave - perfect! Made for the Gimme 5 Tag Game. Thanks for sharing.

I'm not much of a muffin maker [like to eat them, however!], but just had to try these because of the cranberries [I DID add a bit of orange zest], so went out and bought myself some muffin tins! I'll tell you several things ~ I found them extremely easy to make; there's no such thing as day-old muffins when it comes to these! Thanks so much for your recipe!
