  4. zest of 1 orange
  5. 2 tablespoons sugar
  6. 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  7. ¼ teaspoon ground Cinnamon

  9. Ingredients for mix fruit cake-
  10. 3 Large eggs
  11. 2 cups Sugar

  14. 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  15. 1 teaspoon orange extract, optional

  1. For cranberry compote-
  2. Add the cranberries, strawberries ,orange zest, sugar, orange juice and the cinnamon into a medium-large pot, and set it over medium-high heat; stir the ingredients gently to incorporate the sugar and the spices together, and bring the cranberry/apple mixture to the boil.
  3. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low / medium-low, and allow the mixture to gently simmer, uncovered, until the cranberries begin to soften slightly, for about 7-8 minutes
  4. Turn off the heat, and pour the cranberry mixture into a clean bowl, and allow it to cool completely (the mixture will continue to thicken up due to the natural pectins in the fruit, as it cools)
