The folks were recently here for a wee visit and brought loads of lovely cranberries with. Naturally thoughts went down the road of what should we make with all of these lovely red jewels. One can’t just eat them as is you know. Mom said she felt like a light spongy muffin and I said I had just the recipe for her. I was a teensy bit worried as I don’t believe my recipes are as good as Moms. It turns out Mom loved these muffins – yippee! So with that kind of approval, you can rest assured they are worth making.
1 cup cranberries
4 egg whites
1 cup sugar
¾ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp baking powder
1½ cups cake flour
¼ tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Place the cranberries in a bowl and cover with boiling water.
- Beat the egg whites until stiff and set aside.
- Cream the butter and sugar.
- Add the liquid alternating with the dry ingredients.
- Drain the cranberries and add to the mixture.
- Fold in the egg whites.
- Divide the mixture into 12 prepared muffins tins and bake for 15 minutes.
Your ruby-filled muffins look delicious, Mandy. We’re heading into cranberry season and recipes like this one will be a welcome change from the customary sauces. 🙂
These would be even better using fresh cranberries John. I was thinking about making a pasta for dinner this evening – might go with whatever is in the fridge again and see if I can make another taste explosion. Have a super day. 🙂
Love this recipe Mandy! I love the use of egg whites, which I’m sure makes for a moist and fluffy muffin. Just the way I like ’em!
These are super moist and fluffy Karista. Have a beautiful day. 🙂
one of my favourites for sure 🙂
What a pity we aren’t close enough to share a couple of a cuppa. Have a super day. 🙂
They look delicious and if they are mom approved… 😉
Exactly Giovanna. Have a super day. 🙂
Gorgeous recipe my friend, perfect for an abundance of cranberries 🙂

Mum approval is the best!
Absolutely! Have an awesome day Claire. 🙂 xo
Hi! The muffins really look delicious! I can relate to your post: my mum is always bringing me fruit from her garden and I always panic because I have to look for new recipes to use up everything [when I don’t give some of it to my friends].
Hi Alex, thanks for stopping by. I don’t think I will ever be as good a cook or baker as my Mom. Have a super day. 🙂
Such pretty little muffins!
Thanks so much Lizzy. Have a happy day. 🙂
Ah Mandy they look and sound amazing. Now…if only I could jsut pop over and have a muffin and a coffe with you….:)
Oh that would be awesome Tanya! Have a lovely day and I am so happy you are back up and running with your internet connection. 😀
These muffins have such smooth and light texture. Well done, Mandy!
Thanks Angie, the muffin mixture is one of my favourites. Have a lovely day. 🙂
I also feel like my mother cooks so much better than I do. I love the look of your mum’s muffins – delicious! xx
It was fun being back in the kitchen with my mom; we always have so much fun. Have a super day Charlie. 🙂 xo
I just had breakfast but your fresh cranberry muffins are making me hungry again.
No matter how old we are, always feels good to receive mom’s approval.
I’m sure you have space for just one muffin with your tea Norma. You absolutely right, mom’s approval is the best! Have a super day. 🙂
How fun cooking with mom. Like mother, like daughter. We never stop learning from them. Muffins look like they are calling me for a snack.
These are the perfect snack for with tea Bam. Have a lovely day. 🙂
This are so pretty for the fall! I think your mom and my mom should hang out, they sound like they’d have lots in common, lol! I can see why this recipe got your mom’s seal of approval!! xx
Seeing that our mom’s are going to be hanging out, I am coming along for the ride. Have a super day Smidge. 🙂 xo
Yum!!! And it’s almost cranberry season here. Thanks so much Mandy!! 🙂 xo
Glad you like the recipe Sarah. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Yummy. I adore crannberries, Mandy.
They are beautiful, sweet memories from the Holidays. Xxxxxx
Best part with these Kim, is you can enjoy outside of the holidays too. Hope you are well. Love to you in MN. 🙂 xo
Mandy, these look so light and delicious! Love that you used the cake flour for a light texture. Feels like fall is coming on!!! Would love these on a chilly morning!
With a nice warming cup of tea on the side and you have a perfect morning. Have a super day. 🙂
How cute and tasty looking. And you can’t go wrong when they are mom approved. 🙂
Absolutely Kristy – mom approved recipes are keepers! Have a super day. 🙂
I’ve been on a cranberry and bing cherry kick lately – this looks awesome!
Don’t think I have had bing cherries before. Have a super day Jen. 🙂
One of my all time favorites…cranberry muffins, and I can see why your mom loved them! I can’t wait until we have fresh cranberries so I can make these…maybe with a teensy bit of orange zest, too. Beautiful muffins. 🙂
Ooh, Betsy, I love the idea of orange zest. Think I will have to make another batch asap! Have a happy day. 🙂
Why is it that Mom’s cooking always seems better? I laugh now when my daughter says that about my cooking when I think she actually comes up with more creative, excellent ideas.
These look beautiful.
A mom’s cooking always has an extra something special – unconditional love maybe. Have a super weekend Diane. 🙂
Wow, absolutely stunning! Thanks for sharing =)
Thanks mydearbakes, glad you like the muffins. Have a super weekend. 🙂
So glad your mom liked them. They look so pretty!
Hi Beth, thanks for stopping by. You can’t beat moms approval! Have a super week ahead. 🙂
Thanks for sharing such a nice and simple muffin recipe
Glad you like it Raymund. I am about to go and mix up a new batch. Have a happy day. 🙂
