These are really good!Great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce. I think the recipe is good for 12 large muffins. The next time I would add a streusel topping and maybe some walnuts. I will definitely make these again.

These were surprisingly good. Nice flavor, rose very well, had a delicious crispy top with a moist interior. Loved the spices. I used whole milk, as I always do in baking to ensure a moist product with a full flavor. I had considered adding some sort of topping to these, but I loved the thin crispy layer that developed and am glad I didn't add anything to this great recipe. I got 14 perfect sized muffins from this recipe instead of eighteen. Thanks!

Absolutely perfect use of cranberry sauce. So good in fact I made more sauce so I could make them again. One batch I used whole wheat flour and had very good results.

I tried this recipe and loved the muffins. I made a simple lemon glaze to go over them (needed to use up some lemon juice) and they were magnificent. Thank you for sharing this great use of leftover cranberry sauce.
