Cranberry and grapefruit muffins

Cranberry and grapefruit muffins

This year I used cranberries in baking for the first time. Now there is no way back. It has turned into an addiction! In last month I have baked this apple and cranberry crumble pie a couple of times and half of my freezer is still taken up by these super berries.

The other day when I had nothing yummy for breakfast, it was a perfect excuse (as if I needed one) to bake with cranberries again. These muffins are easy and very fast to make and turned out to be so delicious that I had them for breakfast for next 4 days!



2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 beaten eggs
¾ cup semi skimmed milk
Juice of one grapefruit
½ cup melted butter
¼ cup citrus peel (I used ready cut peel of orange and lemon)
2/3 cup cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C.
  2. In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and set aside.
  3. In a separate medium bowl combine beaten eggs, milk, melted butter and grapefruit juice. Add this mixture to dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  4. Carefully fold in cranberries and citrus peel.
  5. Spoon into muffin cases and bake about 25 minutes or until golden.
  6. Cool and serve at room temperature.

  1. These muffins look amazing. I’ve never baked with grapefruit before and have never thought of pairing it with cranberry. I don’t like my muffins to be too sweet so this sounds like it could be a perfect combination. Thanks for linking up with #FreshCranberryRecipes.

  2. I’ve never used whole cranberries or grapefruit in baking either, but this recipe sounds great. Will have to try this sometime. Love the color the cranberry gives the finished product – beautiful =)
