I had about a cup of Cranberry sauce sitting in the refrigerator and no one wanted to eat it any more. Me being me didn’t want to trash it. So I just made muffins out of it.

I remember reading an article from the culinary arts that anytime you make muffins, for every 2 cups of flour, you need 2 cups of liquid and a tablespoon of baking powder. This is the most basic recipe and you may tweak it to add flavors as you like. So for this very recipe, I tried to go with those measurements and they came out pretty good and made a good snack.

Leftover Cranberry Sauce Muffins
Dry Ingredients
  1. All Purpose Flour/Maida - 2 cups ( See tips )
  2. Baking powder - 1 tblspn
  3. Salt - 1/2 tspn
  4. Sugar - 3/4th cup
  5. Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tspn
  6. Nutmeg powder - A generous pinch (Optional)
Wet Ingredients
  1. Cranberry Sauce - 1 cup
  2. Milk - 3/4th cup
  3. Neutral tasting oil - 1/4th cup
  4. Egg - 1
  5. Vanilla Essence - 1 tspn
  1. 1) Mix dry ingredients well in a mixing bowl.
  2. 2) In a separate bowl, combine together the wet ingredients while also beating the egg lightly.
  3. 3) Pre-heat oven to 400 deg F.

  1. 1) To measure out flour, spoon flour into measuring cup and then level it with a knife. Do not just scoop out the flour using the measuring cup itself! The flour should not be tightly packed.
  2. 2) When mixing the dry ingredients with the wet, do not over mix as they can lead to hard muffins.
  3. 3) Brown sugar may be substituted for white. I did not use it as I was running out of brown sugar.
  4. 4) Oven temperatures vary. The type of muffin pan used also decides the cook time. So please keep an eye on the muffins after the first 15 minutes. A tooth pick inserted into the centre of the muffins should come out clean.
