When you think of Cranberries, you think of Christmas. I think these little beauties look so pretty espically covered in sugar. It reminds me of frosty mornings when trees that are covered in berries have this beautiful white frost over them.
Cranberries are generally very tart. I love cranberry juice but it does make you wee a lot! so cut down on drinking it, especially when I go out. I used to be cranberry and vodka kinda of girl. Now my taste has matured into red wine and gin and tonic, how old ages changes you!
We had some fresh cranberries and I haven’t had them in such a while. I wanted to find a recipe that I thought would work well. The original recipe didn’t however use fresh but dried this cake still turned out well, you can still use dried cranberries if fresh cranberries are hard to find.
This loaf cake is perfectly balanced, the nuts giving it crunch, the tart cranberries cut by overly sweet white chocolate makes this cake flavours work really well. This cake is lovely with a nice cup of coffee or tea.
