Reader and blogger Sweetreats is sharing this extra-gorgeous recipe for cranberry muffins with us today ... what are you waiting for?

Sweetreats says:

These cranberry muffins are perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast or a sunny spring picnic... or almost any other occasion you can think of,  for that matter! They taste great, but are deceptively simple to bake! Scrumptious!

You will need:

100g self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
55g caster sugar
100g dried cranberries
100ml natural yoghurt
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
icing sugar to dust

- Pre heat the oven to 190c/ gas mark 5.

- Line two 12 section mini muffin tins with 18 3cm mini muffin paper cases.

- Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Stir in caster sugar and cranberries.

- In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the yoghurt, egg and vegetable oil with a fork, until all is evenly combined.

- Tip the yoghurt mixture into the flour. Use a dessert spoon to gently fold ingredients together until only just mixed. Do not over-blend, or the muffins will not be as light.

- Spoon mixture into the paper cases... it should be roughly level with the top of the tin, rather than the top of the paper case.

- Bake in pre heated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until risen and firm to the touch.

- Leave muffins in tin for a couple of minutes, and then transfer them, still in their cases, onto a wire rack to cool down.

- Serve warm or cold, dusted lightly with icing sugar!
