cranberry muffins

A little gem from Nigella Christmas. I am firmly with her on this one: I don’t know how anybody manages much more than toast on Christmas morning. And while I didn’t make these on 25th December they were perfect for a couple of days later.

From Nigella Lawson’s Christmas Morning Muffins.

Cranberry muffins (makes about 12):

250g plain flour

2½ teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

100g caster sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

good grating of fresh nutmeg

Zest and juice of 1 orange

125ml milk

75ml vegetable oil

1 egg

175g dried cranberries

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Bung all the ingredients except the cranberries in a food mixer and blend until smooth, then fold in the fruit. Dollop into cake cases and bake for about 12 – 15 minutes until golden and risen.
