Help me find a Cranberry & Orange Cake recipe that replicates the taste of the C&O starbucks muffin...

Every year I have to have at least one C&O muffin from starbucks, I love the sourness of the cranberry against the sweet cake and the moist little pockets of orange - not bitter, just tangy and orangy - which stop the muffin from being boring to eat.

Any ideas on how to replicate?? I would really prefer to make this as a cake but not sure how to get a really good orange tang going apart from a syrup. How does Starbucks get the the orange into the muffin???? I wonder.

Does anyone have a great tried and tested recipe? The muffin contains what tastes like whole cooked cranberries, not a (tasteless, papery) dried cranberry in sight.

Smitten kitchen has a cranberry upside down cake that could easily be flavoured with a little orange but I don't think it is quite right.

Happy to try a muffin recipe too. But I'd love a cake.
