  3. In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until pale in colour. Add the eggs one by one, mixing between each addition
  4. Pour in the, flour and baking powder, stir together. Follow by adding the cereal mix and combine again. To finish, add the dried cranberries and combine one last time so that the fruit is evenly distributed throughout the mix
