This is a great way to use up any extra cranberry sauce with orange you may have left over. Maybe make a double batch of sauce, just so you can make these wonderful muffins...

Cranberry Orange Muffins

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cranberry sauce with orange  (click to go to our recipe)

(*if you don't have any buttermilk on hand, you can substitute with regular milk and 1 tsp of lemon juice)

Streusel Topping (Optional)

2 TBSP cold butter
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 dashes of cinnamon

Cut butter into other ingredients until you have little pea sized bits of butter.

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin cups. (I use cooking spray)

2. Mix up your streusel topping. Push it off to the side for later.

3. Get your mixer and beat the wet ingredients: milk, oil, vanilla, and egg. Stir in dry ingredients and cranberry orange sauce. Just until combined, you don't want to over mix.

4. Pour into muffin tins. Spoon about a tablespoon of streusel topping onto each.

5. Bake around 20 minutes, until golden on top and toothpick comes out clean.

6. Loosen up muffins, pull out of the tins and cool on a rack.
