Christmas recipe instructions:

  1. Mix the icing sugar with halved cranberries.

  2. Take a twelve cup muffin tin and grease with butter or use paper cases. In a bowl mix the brown sugar, salt, mixed spice, baking powder and both flours. Make a hole in the middle.

  3. 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 (225 g, 8 oz) to put in the hole.]

  4. Take this mixture and fill the muffin cups to two thirds and bake at gas mark 4 (180 degfrees centigrade, 350 F) until they are golden brown and well risen. About 20 minutes.

  5. Cool for a bit and serve warm.
