100 Happy Days – Day 68 (Cranberry and Cream Cheese Muffins)

Homemade cranberry and cream cheese muffins

I’ve fancied making these for a while, but never got round to it. I was pretty happy with these as they actually tasted like a proper muffin, unlike other recipes I’ve tried, and the cream cheese added a nice silky taste to it😀

Ingredients (makes 6):
 50g cream cheese
 125g caster sugar
 70g fresh cranberries
 100g self raising flour
 1 egg
 75g margarine
 1tsp vanilla extract
Method:
 1. Preheat the oven to 180
 2. Beat the cream cheese with 25g of the sugar
 3. Heat the cranberries with 25g of the sugar until they start to pop
 4. Mash the cranberries lightly and cool
 5. Cream together the margarine and remaining sugar
 6. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well
 7. Sift in the flour and mix
 8. Add in the cranberry mix
 9. Divide the mix between 6 cupcake/muffin cases
 10. Drop some of the cream cheese mix into each cupcake and mix a bit
 11. Bake for about 25 minutes
