    Daydasa's Note:

    I saw the origianl recipe in a Quick Cooking magazine. It called for fresh or frozen cranberries. I perfer the dried ones, but anyone can surely change it up a bit too. I've been making this cake every Holiday season now for about 4 years. It's always a huge hit. The cranberries make it look so festive, and taste oh so good. I've had many request for this recipe and I hope you enjoy it too!!

      I made this cake for my office christmas party. I could not beleive the taste of this cake. It well over so well I found myself making copies of this recipe for everyone before I left. The only thing I did differently is I used dried cranberries that had cherry flavored added. Sadly to say there were no leftovers to bring home with me. I will definitely be making this with my Christmas dinner. Thank you so much for a great recipe!
