* Finely grated rind of 1 orange


1) Put the cranberries in a bowl, then add the orange juice and leave to soak for 1 hour. Next grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line it with 12 paper cases (stars and stripes cases would look fab!)

3) Lightly beat the eggs in a large jug or bowl, then beat in the milk, oil and orange rind. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour in the beaten liquid ingredients and add the soaked cranberries. Stir gently until just combined; do not over mix
