  • 50g icing sugar sifted

  • 250ml milk

  • 15ml baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 50g sugar light brown

  • 50ml vegetable oil

  • 150g flour plain wholemeal

  • 150g flour plain white

  • 1 tsp mixed spice ground

  • 1 eggs

  • 175g cranberries fresh


  1. Mix the icing sugar with halved cranberries.
  2. Take a 12-cup muffin tin and grease with butter or use paper cases.
  3. In a bowl mix the brown sugar, salt, mixed spice, baking powder and both flours. Make a hole in the middle.
  4. Add a mixture of beaten egg/milk/oil into the hole and just blend. Then add the cranberries and quickly stir. The end product should be a rough mixture with lumps and air pockets visible. [Note: Instead of the cranberries you can use mincemeat (225g, 8oz) to put in the hole.]
  5. Take this mixture and fill the muffin cups to two thirds and bake at 180C/Gas Mark 4 until they are golden brown and well risen. About 20 minutes.
  6. Cool for a bit and serve warm.
