    Cranberries & raisins -- How can I go wrong with this recipe, one that I snagged from my favorite cranberry cookbook, The Joy of Cranberries: The Tangy Red Treat, which was sent to me by my partner in the current Cookbook Swap!

      Another fruity winner from the kitchen of Syd! I LOVE this type of fruit cake and this was wonderful. I am SO sorry that I did not have enough cranberries - they are not easy to find in France and are quite expensive, so I was only able to use about 1/4 of a cup. I added a few sultanas and currants to make up for the shortfall, and some extra walnuts too. I used my own apple jam and decided to add ALL of my walnuts to the cake mixture, rather than put them on the top, as I was worried they might burn and become bitter after 75 minutes of cooking - my cake took nearer 90 minutes to cook, but ovens do vary. I used a bread loaf tin and it turned out very well. Made for Holiday tag - thanks Syd! FT:-)
