These muffins r quick n easy bake for christmas morning n they tastes really delicious with superb flavour coz of cinnamon n nutmeg powders ... Rosie n Maria also proposed to change certain ingredients which may not available in certain countries, for dry cranberries they asked to use any dry fruits, so i used raisins n dates for my muffins, else i just followed each n every steps as they followed to prepare these delicious christmas morning muffins...
