Cranberry and Orange Zest Muffins

If you love baking, you'll love these home-made, low-Check muffins. Bake up a batch and, if there's any left, you can freeze them!

  • 2 egg whites
  • 200 ml/7fl oz skimmed milk
  • 115 g/4oz frozen cranberries
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 225 g/8oz self raising flour
  • 50 g/1¾oz granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 large orange (use grated zest only)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.
  2. Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until frothy.
  3. Stir in the milk, frozen cranberries and oil.
  4. Stir in all the remaining ingredients.
  5. Do not over beat – muffin mixtures should be lumpy.
  6. Place 10 or 12 muffin cases in a muffin tin.
  7. Divide the mixture between the cases, about half to two-thirds full.
  8. Bake about 25 minutes until risen and golden.
  9. Allow to cool completely – or you will find that half the muffin sticks to the paper case!
