To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard muffin pan with papers, and set it aside for now.

In your mixing bowl, combine 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and cinnamon. Give those a quick stir to mix.

Measure out 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of milk. Add in 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, a teaspoon of vanilla and an egg.

Whisk them all together in the  measuring cup, or a small dish.

003_edited-1

Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and mix them together until well combined.

006_edited-1

Spoon about a teaspoon or so of the batter into the bottom of each muffin cup – enough to cover the bottom.

007_edited-1

Spoon about 2 teaspoons of cranberry sauce into the center of each cup. I am using some of my homemade sauce, but the canned kind works just as well.

012_edited-1

Spoon the remaining batter into the cups, dividing it evenly.

013_edited-1

Top each with a teaspoon of demerera (raw) sugar.

014_edited-1

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until they test done in the center with a toothpick. Remove to a cooling rack and cool for a few minutes.

015_edited-1

Serve the muffins warm or room temperature.

  1. These look delish and I want to make them today. The only ingredient I don’t have is the raw sugar. Can regular white sugar be used instead?
