How to Make White Chocolate Cranberry Muffins

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and white sugar.

Add to another mixing bowl the milk, oil, egg and vanilla extract.  Stir until well combined. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the flour.  Mix until just combined.  Fold through the cranberries and white chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, dividing it evenly. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.  Allow to cool in tin for 10 minutes, before transferring the muffins to a cooling rack to cool completely.
