It’s that time of the year there are cranberries on the shelf and I can’t wait to make a batch of these delicious cranberry muffins. The sourness of the cranberries is perfect in these and they make the most amazingly simple and quick breakfast during the holiday season. So here you go our fresh cranberry muffin recipe for the family to enjoy.
It’s only in the lead up to Thanksgiving and Christmas that our local store has fresh cranberries in so once I have a few boxes I start to get baking. These are one of the kid’s favourites and mine too if I’m honest.
They are so simple to make, and I try and have a batch of them available for most of the holiday season so that the kids can grab one on the way to the school bus for a little festive cheer to carry them on their way.

Fresh or Frozen Cranberries
At other times of the year I make a muffin with dried cranberries (I’ll get around to sharing the recipe one day!) but it’s got a much more intense flavour than these.
Although not sweet like blueberries the burst of flavour is the same as you dig into them. With the little bit of pecan, they are just divine.
Preventing the Cranberries from Sinking!
Sometimes it all goes wrong and I just end up with a pile of cranberries at the bottom of each muffin so to prevent it my top tip is…
Roll your cranberries carefully in a sprinkle of flour before adding to the batter this will stop them from sinking whilst cooking!
It’s great and works every single time (I do it with blueberries, chocolate chips anything that I really don’t want to sink to the bottom of the muffin liner.
