Cranberry Applesauce Muffins


We closed on our house in Iowa this week!  We are no longer homeowners.  It is nice to officially have that done with and move on with life in Colorado.  We are working on plans for the house we are going to build, and we found a lot we want.  I am excited to see the plans come together.  Can’t wait to have my double ovens, and a giant cook top!  In the meantime though I will make yummy treats in my little kitchen here.

I told you back when I made this Cranberry Bread that cranberries were new to me, but I thought I liked them.  After making these muffins, I am back on the fence.  I think the recipe is a good one, I think it is the tartness of the cranberries that might be too much for me.  My 6 year old told me to make a sign for this post that said DO NOT MAKE!  I think that is a little much.  I think if I had sprinkled some sugar on the cranberries, and let them sit, that would have sweetened them up quite a bit.   I will keep trying cranberries, I really do want to like them!

  7. We are muffin fiends here so this will be a must try for me, Erin. But I understand what you mean about the cranberries. They are a wee bit acidic (to put it mildly) when eaten as is.

  11. You never know if you get a batch of very tart or sweet cranberries. You should give dried cranberries a try. I think they are much more baking friendly. :) PS… congrats on the house closing… wow… that went buy fast. I know you probably don’t think fast enough. :) Have a great weekend. Welcome to your life in CO 100% now. :)

  13. Congratulations on your house closing! I loved my time living in colorado, it’s such a great place to live. As for cranberries, they’re tricky! I usually wind up using dried cranberries because they are generally sweeter.

  35. I usually substitute applesauce for oil/butter when baking. I love what the cranberries do to the muffins, very pretty. And congrats on closing on your house, it can be so stressful, especially in this market!

  39. It took me a little bit to like cranberries too, but I’m a huge fan now. I think it was an amazing cranberry chutney that I made a while back that did it for me. You’ll find that recipe that fully converts you too – just keep trying =)

  45. I made something kind of like these. http://wp.me/p1MqO8-9D No applesauce but bits of apples with the cranberries and I DID in fact, sprinkle sugar on top! I really liked them and it gave me real appreciation for the cranberry that I didn’t have before.
