This recipe might look a tad familiar to you. Why? Well, once again it’s my Famous Banana Muffin Recipe, transformed just a little but without the bananas! Just replace them with canned cranberry sauce (or fresh cooked if you’ve got it) add in some pumpkin pie spice, and grated lemon zest and voila! Festive Muffin Mania! Enjoy!
Easy Cranberry Sauce Muffins
1 can whole cranberry sauce (like you serve with turkey)
1/2 cup white sugar (original recipe calls for 1 cup, but I don’t like them too sweet)
1 slightly beaten egg
1/3 cup melted margarine or butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or to taste)
Mix the cranberry sauce, sugar, egg and margarine together. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Mix wet and dry ingredients all together! Pour into greased muffin tins, and bake in 350 degrees F oven for approximately 20 minutes. Enjoy!
*My recipe made about 10 muffins, but you could likely squeeze a dozen small ones out of the batch.
