Dried Cranberry and Walnut Muffins

During our relaxy weekend I of course had to do some baking! So I decided to make something we could take for breakfast this week.

I warn you that these are dense muffins, not bad dense just not super airy.
I could tell from the batter this was going to be the case, it was between brownie and dough consitency instead of runny like muffin mixes from the bag are. But we were really happy with them anyway and accidentally devoured 2 of them right out of the oven! :)

I mixed/ made up this recipe so it may be one that I play with to make even better. We'll see

2   in another bowl mix extract, butter, milk, oil, egg and sugar, whisk together
