I tried a new recipe for Thanksgiving this year. I found it in the newspaper several months ago and thought it would be perfect for fall or winter.
This is the image from Dash Recipes; mine didn't look exactly like this. It is absolutely amazing. Mine didn't exactly come nicely out of the pan, so it was more of a crumble than a cake, but it tasted great! My sister helped me make it and that was great, because it's not really a simple mix-pour-bake recipe. She chopped walnuts and melted butter while I rinsed cranberries and zested an orange. She juiced oranges while I measured brown sugar and cinnamon. She stirred one thing while I stirred another. There's definitely some prep to this recipe, but it is so worth it! And as much as I am not a fan of walnuts (or any nut in general) they added a nice crunch to this cake. The fresh-squeezed orange juice and fresh orange zest added a great citrus kick that you just can't get from the carton or bottle.
We'll be making this again for Christmas!
Love and Cranberries,
