Cranberry Muffins

This 1908 recipe has a very rich, thick batter loaded with baking powder.  The berries were fresh and softened during the baking. 

From the book Basic Principles of Domestic Science by Lilla Pauline Frich, Indianapolis: 1908.

1/3 c. butter     3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. sugar      2 c. sifted flour
1 egg                4 tsp. baking powder
1 c berries (sprinkled with
     2 tbsp. sugar)

Cream the butter, add sugar, well beaten egg, and milk, then the flour sifted with the B. P. Add berries, drop into muffin pans, and bake.  If the berries are omitted, rich, plain muffins are the result.
