"A great cake for the fall cranberry season. I always have cranberries in the freezer (I stock up in the fall) and just thaw what I need for baking anytime of the year. This cake can be glazed with your favorite sugar glaze, or make glaze with powdered sugar and orange juice."

"Absolutely delicious! This cake is the reason why I freeze fresh cranberries for use all year long. The combination of the dates and cranberries is wonderful and the smell while the cake is baking is fabulous. Will definitely make this cake again and again! Made for the Football Pool, September 2013."
"I made this with some extra fresh cranberries that I had remaining from the holidays. Super great cake. It has a nice density that makes it heavy and filling and the fruits and nuts give it a pleasing consistency and flavor.
Recommended. Thanks for sharing."
"Very tasty! I added some orange zest & subbed peanuts for the walnuts because one of my friends is very allergic to tree nuts. I'd prefer the walnuts, but it was still very good. And easy!"
"What a wonderful cake. It tasted excellent. I will make this one over and over."
"This is really really good. I left out the dates and added more cranberry and raisns. next time i might add orange zest for more flavour."
"Nice, moist, flavorful and sweet! I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone enjoyed it!"
"We really enjoyed this cake. Like the previous reviewer, we omitted the dates (didn't have any on hand) and upped the nuts and cranberries. This cake was fine the first day, but after mellowing was luscious the next day. A keeper!"
"Autumn 2006 PAC: Mikekey, this recipe is out of this world. The ingredients mixed up to make a wonderful tasting, BEAUTIFUL cake. The only change I made was to omit the dates as we do not care for them. I just added an extra 1/2 cup of cranberries and 1/2 cup of nuts to replace the dates. THIS WAS BEAUTIFUL on my cake plate and the ladies at our party all requested the recipe...... THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL new addition to my "keeper" file!"
