Notes

 
  • I used salted butter in this recipe.
  • May substitute whole milk for the eggnog
  • May omit streusel topping, if desired
  • Make certain butter is softened, not melted before combining with sugar.
  • Add half the flour mixture, then the egg mixture and then the flour mixture again.
  • Once all flour has been mixed in, do not over mix.
  • Fold cranberries in gently with a spatula
