A couple of years ago I met a lady. Her name is Jeanne Cohick. It was love at first site. She was smart, funny, so very kind and just an amazing lady. She has had many lives, in the sense that she had many careers. Mom, wife, INNKEEPER!
Yes, innkeeper. She had me at "I just sold my bed and breakfast". To which she followed up with..."Why don't you come over and look through my recipes". What? Now? "Sure!"
Seriously, I went into overload and just basked in her recipes. Here is one that I revised because it's the holidays and cranberries are everywhere.
Now, let me just say, my only experience with cranberries is out of a can, eating them. I love them when they squish out of the can in their perfect canned shape and they get sliced and served. I also love the canned ones that don't come out that way. Although one of my BFF's makes homemade cranberry sauce for the holidays and I always request that she bring that. I wanted to not have whole ones in the cake, so I had to ask my friend if the are able to be cut in half without squishing them. She replied with..."you could even bounce them, that is how they come." Oh.
Anyhoo, I present Apple Cranberry Cake.
It's a version of the Caramel Apple Cake,but like I said above, it's the holiday season, so I splashed it with some red. Oh and I had a few blueberries (like 10) that I tossed in because I could.
It's moist, pretty and could be a breakfast or dessert. You know I love to multi-task my foods. I didn't add the icing because I forgot to get half and half, it was still very tasty and now a teensy bit healthier.
