  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with liners.
  2. Mix 6 tablespoons flour and brown sugar together in a bowl; cut butter into the flour mixture until you have pea-sized crumbs.
  3. Beat margarine and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat egg and vanilla into the butter mixture.
  4. Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into the butter mixture. Fold zucchini, cranberries, and walnuts into the mixture; spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling nearly to the top. Sprinkle topping mixture onto the batter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

I made the recipe exactly as listed. They were moist and flavorful. Anytime SHORECOOK creates a recipe it is sure to be good. I used frozen cranberries.

Wow, what a great flavor. I was a little concerned that the fresh berries would be too tart, but not a chance. Love the flavor. I will definitely be making the again soon.
