I found this recipe in a magazine and it hung about on my desk for ages, until I eventually got around to making it. Sweet, but not too sweet, it has become a firm favorite in this house.

Made this the other day, but with a major addition of orange flavor in that I included a tablespoon of orange zest in the batter ~ We do like the combo of cranberry & orange! [Tagged, made & reviewed as part of my theme ~ Let Them Eat Cake! ~ in the current My 3 Chefs event]
