Cheap, quick and easy - these delicious cranberry and cinnamon snacks are perfect as a teatime treat or at bake sales and kids' parties.


  • 175g (6oz) soft margarine
  • 175g (6oz) soft light brown sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 200g (7oz) self-raising white flour
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 75g (2 oz) sweetened semi-dried cranberries
  • Rind of juice of 1 orange
  • Demerara sugar for decoration

Top tip: If cranberries are a little too sharp for your taste, try raisins or dried cherries instead.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F, gas mark 5). Line a baking tin 33x23cm (13x9in).
  2. Cream together the margarine and sugar. Beat together the eggs and add to the margarine and sugar. Carefully fold the flour and cinnamon into the mixture. Add the cranberries with the rind and juice of the orange to form a soft dropping consistency. Spread the mixture into the prepared tin and cook for 25 mins.
  3. Turn out and leave to cool before cutting into 'teatime' pieces. Sprinkle with a little demerara sugar.

I've just eaten a piece warm & it's absolutely delicious! I was worried that the tin seemed a bit big for the quantity, but it's ok & cooks quickly in the suggested tin size. I confess to having bunged everything together in the food processor, apart from the fruit & juice which I stirred in at the end. I used frozen red currants as I didn't have any cranberries -great way of using up a glut of any similar berries! PS My husband loved it too. Hopefully my friends will agree when they taste it later.


got to try these to as the wife likes the look of them and you got to keep my lovely little lady happy well let you know how there turn out


Just made this traybake and it turned out really well. The children have eaten half of it hot out the oven already. I will be making this again - that's for sure!
