Cranberry Sweet Potato Muffins

My sister made these scrumptious muffins for my mom's birthday... oh, my!  She used squash, but the original recipe calls for sweet potato.

These are a real winner in my book.  I'm planning to make them again really soon.

Cranberry Sweet Potato Muffins - Recipe from Mom {via another source}

1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 egg
1/2 C milk
1/2 C cold mashed sweet potatoes
1/4 C butter, melted
1 C fresh/frozen cranberries

Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Combine the egg, milk, sweet potatoes and butter in a second small bowl.  Mix well.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ones until just moistened.

Fold in cranberries.

Fill lightly greased muffin cups half way, and then sprinkle the tops with cinnamon, if desired.

Bake at 375 for 18-22 minutes.  Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to finish cooling on a wire wrack.

Makes 1 dozen.
