Well, as much as I thought I knew about cranberries, I didn't know, & couldn't find, canned cranberries (just the sauces), so used some frozen ones I still have! The cans were no problem, since I ALWAYS have those around! Enjoyed the addition of coconut in these & ended up with some tasty little cakes! Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray the inside of 5 (16-ounce) cranberry cans (or similar) with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine muffin mix, juice, cranberries (save the remaining contents from the other 3 cans for pancakes!), coconut, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Divide batter among the prepared cans and place cans on a baking sheet. Make sure to tap cans on the counter to get out all the air bubbles. Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.
  3. For a nice presentation, decorate can.
