Cranberry Sauce Muffins Recipe

This recipe is a good use of any leftover cranberry sauce from Christmas. The mild sweetness of the muffins complement the tartness of the cranberries.

Serves: a dozen muffins with cupcake liner measuring 5cm in diameter by 3cm in height


  •  1 1/2 cups* (190g) plain flour
  • 1 1/2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 200g cranberry sauce (either store-bought canned whole cranberry sauce or home-made)
  • 3/4 cup cranberries (if frozen, no need to thaw before use)
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  65 grams butter softened

* Cup refers to US cup measurement

You also need:

  •   sieve
  • large bowl & wooden spoon
  • disposable baking cases
  • muffin baking tray


  1. Sift flour, baking powder and sugar together, and mix well.
  2. Add in milk, vanilla extract, eggs and butter and stir until just blended (and lumpy). Be careful not to over mix as it will result in a tough texture.
  3. Fold in the cranberries and cranberry sauce into the mixture. Place baking cases in muffin tins. Spoon the mixture into the cases till about 2/3 full
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven of 200°C (392°F) or until slightly golden brown. Allow to rest for several minutes before serving. Store for a day in an airtight container. Freeze extras in ziplock bags and whenever you need a muffin or two, toast them for a few minutes in the oven until they are warm.
