Makes 12 muffins


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Ocean Spray® Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Drink
1 1/4 cups Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
Orange zest (optional)

1 cup powdered sugar (may need more depending on consistency)
2 tablespoons Ocean Spray® Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice Drink


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease muffin tins.

Add Craisins® Dried Cranberries to a bowl and cover with Ocean Spray® Ruby Red Juice Drink. Microwave 1 minute until plump. Strain, reserving ½ cup of the Ruby Red Juice Drink for the recipe, and set aside the dried cranberries.

I've been trying to bake cranberry orange muffins this Christmas, but failed several times till I found this one. I had to make high altitude adjustments(6710 ft) that were necessary. They came out perfect. I'm so happy. Very moist and they didn't flatten out. The changes I added were 2 tablespoons less sugar,2 tablespoons more of flour and half of teaspoon less of baking powder and 1 tablespoon more of juice. It's hard to find a good cranberry orange muffin recipe. Thanks oceanspray!!!

This recipe is a keeper

My husband loved these. I will definitely make these again...often!

Love the sweet tart taste

I used orange juice (because that is what I had). Loved it!!!
