    Beautiful, easy and delicious...the best kind of recipe! I have made a similar recipe several times from scratch, but, this has as good results with less fuss. Especially great for special occasions, or family Sunday dinner. I did leave out the orange.

    This is a wonderful mix of tart and sweet. Here's what I changed: like a previous poster I don't like orange zest, so just I leave it out. I do add just a little more suger to the cranberries so no one screws up their face when eating it. I drain a can of pineapple and replace as much of the water as I can with the juice, it gives the cake a nice flavor and adds to the moistness. Delicious!
