Recipe: Cranberry Corn Muffins

Cranberry Corn Muffins

1 (8.5 ounce) package Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In small bowl, combine muffin mix, egg and milk.  Mix until just blended.  Fold in cranberries.  In greased muffin tin, fill cups to 2/3 full.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes.  Makes 6 servings.

Recipe can be found on page 215 in MY KIND OF COOKING COOKBOOK.

I love this muffin!  The sweet and tart cranberries are a nice addition to the savory corn muffin.  Not only are the cranberries delicious, but they are full of antioxidants, vitamin C, and fiber.  You can serve this muffin for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a tasty snack.

  14. What a great combo. Corn and cranberries.

  15. Oh, these look so yummy. I am def. going to have to try them...thanks!

  16. Anything that sweetens up a corn muffin is fine with me! I grew up eating dry cornbread and when I discovered other varieties of sweet muffins, I knew I must have been adopted! Well, other foods my mom made were fine, but they ate it in buttermilk, ewww, pass me one of these!

  17. Add cranberries to corn muffins is just right so why didn't I think of it, myself? I have to try this.

  18. Thanks Nirmala! I love the combination of sweet and savory.

    A La Graham, I am glad you're going to try the!

    Chef E, I know what you mean by dry cornbread. I hate it when I have to eat dry tasteless cornbread at someones house.

    Thanks Mr, Pineapple Man!
