Easy Cranberry & Apple Cake

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Quentin Bacon

It’s apple season!  I love all kinds of apples – sweet, tart and crisp – but happily, tart Granny Smith apples are always available.  When I’m in a hurry, this Easy Cranberry and Apple Cake is my go-to dessert.  All you need to do is combine cranberries, apples, brown sugar, orange juice, and cinnamon, pour them into a pie pan, and whip up a quick batter to pour over the top.  An hour later, the cake comes out of the oven and the house is filled with the sweet smell of autumn fruit and cinnamon.
