  1. In a small bowl, combine cranberry sauce and orange peel; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Beat the egg, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in apple. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full.
  2. Make a well in the center of each muffin; fill with about 2 teaspoons of reserved cranberry mixture. Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Combine confectioners' sugar and orange juice; drizzle over cooled muffins.

I did not care for these. The cranberry sauce spread into the muffin and had a gummy consistency. I think dried cranberries would have been better

Great recipe! The texture and flavour were wonderful. The only thing I changed was mixing the cranberries directly into the egg, oil, milk mixture. I also skipped the glaze. Yummy!

YUM. These muffins are the BEST! I have made them several times since discovering the recipe almost two years ago, and they are always a hit. I'm mostly-vegan, and I use Ener-G and almond mi...

I love that I now have a recipe for leftover cranberry sauce. I also added blueberry and strawberry to the mix. My kids love these.

Yummy, moist and a great way to use up the leftover cranberry sauce! Doesn't need the icing, but nice for a sweet touch now and again.

Very tasty!
