No fail recipe

I'm just back from surgery -- my husband's, that is, but I feel like I've been through it, too! All seems well for now, but I'm resorting to a quick blog today.

In keeping with the holidays: a favorite recipe, so easy even I never fail.


1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup margarine or butter
1 1/4 cups whole cranberries
2 eggs
walnuts optional

Mix everything together (my favorite instruction!)

Batter will be lumpy. Don't worry.

Spread in greased dish, 8x8 or 9x9 and bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes.

They look festive and taste great!

Wow! My kind of recipe... no muss, no fuss.
Thank you, Camille, for posting this!

Hope all is well. I'm going to try this. Nothing like a cranberry recipe from a Mass native!

Batter isn't lumpy, it's stiff. but indeed, a great recipe made many times over.....xoxoxoxo

Oh, yummy. And easy! How's your hubby?

Hubby is doing very well, thanks! MD follow up this morning gave us a good report. whew.

And anonymous (the originator of this recipe) did indeed have a better word for the batter -- stiff. Very high viscosity would be an even simpler way to say it. :=))

What a great sounding recipe! We can get cranberries in the UK, but they[re not as common as over your side of the Pond. However I've got a surplus of home-grown raspberries in my freezer just now, and might try to use those instead. Has anyone experimented with other fruits?

Camille Minichino said...

I think I'd put fewer raspberries since they're so liquid compared to "raw" cranberries. Blueberries might be better for consistency.

Sounds delicious either way!

I seldom cook but those sound great, Camille! I'm going to try the recipe, thanks!
