1. Preheat the Cuisinart® Oven Central® to 350ºF with both the top and bottom heaters on. Line the cupcake pan with liners, or lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Put the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and brown sugar into a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Stir in the cranberries and pecans. Reserve.

3. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, mix the egg, milk, vanilla and butter. Add to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined – do not over-mix or muffins will be dense.

4. Transfer the batter to the prepared cupcake pan, about ¼  cup batter per cup. Bake for 15 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean and the tops of the muffins spring back to the touch.
