    Miss Erin's Note:

    I had some frozen cranberries that I was wanting to use up and this seemed like a nice, tart treat.

      This isn't the prettiest cake I've ever made, but the flavour certainly makes up for it. You could make a white batter simply by leaving out the cinnamon, but you don't want to miss what it does for this dessert. Fantastic for sure. The cake is fluffy and so light. The cranberry topping is wonderful. I added extra berries to cover the bottom of the dish, but they seemed to wander during baking. :) I first saw this recipe in a Nigella Lawson book, and knew it was something I wanted to try. I baked this in an oval casserole dish 8 x 12. It took and extra 15 minutes to bake fully. I'll make this one again. Thanks for posting. Made for TOTM Red Tag.

      This is very good .. I used raisins because thats what I had .. I also used half the amount of butter specified in the cake batter, and added extra milk .. it was very easy and quick and I will make it again, thanks
