Vanilla Cranberry Can Cake

I just love Sandra Lee, don't you! I love her show and her magazines! Last week while watching Big Brother 13 Traci and Mrs. Mary decided to make Sandra Lee's Vanilla Cranberry Can Cake for dessert! You bake them in a cleaned out veggie or soup can and THEN decorate them! Here's our decorated cans!
Can you guess which one is mine?
Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it!


  • 2 (17 1/2-ounce) boxes blueberry muffin mix (recommended: Krusteaz)
  • 2 cups white cranberry juice
  • 2 (16-ounce) cans whole cranberries, drained and rinsed (recommended: Ocean Spray)
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded coconut, toasted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray the inside of 5 (16-ounce) cranberry cans (or similar) with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, combine muffin mix, juice, cranberries (save the remaining contents from the other 3 cans for pancakes!), coconut, vanilla, cinnamon, and egg. Stir to combine. Divide batter among the prepared cans and place cans on a baking sheet. Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.



  1. I love the green one with the pink bow! So cute! They would make such cute gifts!

  2. Those look so cute and easy! I will definitely have to think about making these for the next party/friends get together I have at the house!
