    1. In a bowl soak the cranberries in just enough boiling water to cover them for 10 minutes or more. Drain any excess water not absorbed by cranberries and put aside.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a cupcake tray with paddy cups.
    3. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar together until lighter in colour. Add vanilla essence and beat in one egg at a time until it is well combined.
    4. Add half the flour and stir until mixed in. Add the milk and the other half of the flour. Mix together thoroughly.
    5. Add grated apple and drained cranberries then mix in well. If at this stage you find your mixture too runny just add a little more flour.
    6. Spoon into cupcake paddy cups. Cook for 15 minutes or until the top bounces back when touched and a nice golden brown. Cool on a cake rack.
