  1. Hi KatI'm so sorry -I asked for cake, and now I can't get any cranberries! There don't seem to be any anywhere in Flintshire after Christmas. I have managed to get a Bundt tin though, so could I use blueberries as a substitute? I know it won't be tangy, but we can't seem to get anything else tangy at the moment, unless I made it with oranges … which might actually be very nice!!

  2. I make a cake very similar to this and bake it in a funnel pan. Haven't made it in ages. I must try yours! Hey, your pic displays it on some of my fave Boleslawiec pottery!(count me IN for Sepia Saturday)

  3. Cranberry and orange are two of my favorite flavors! I will give this one a try. I have a wonderful recipe for cranberry-orange scones, supposedly the one used by Starbucks for theirs. Thanks for this one, Kat.

  4. Ooh, we love cranberries. Husband and big ones off ski-ing and snowboarding tomorrow, so this looks like an afternoon project for me and the littl'uns. Thanks Kat!
