  • Preheat the oven to 400F; line a muffin tray with 12 paper liners.
  • Whisk together the sour milk, sugar, oil, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda and use a wooden spoon to stir just until combined.
  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin well and top each with 1/2 tablespoon cranberry sauce. Spoon the remaining batter on top.
  • Bake the muffins until a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean, about 18 to 20 minutes.


  • Instead of buttermilk, you can use sour milk, or you can curdle your own milk. To do so, put 3/4 cup of milk in a bowl and sprinkle on 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice; let it sit for 3 minutes to curdle before using.
