Thanksgiving Recipe Review: Cranberry Cake | The Kitchn

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Thanksgiving! Here is how we started ours:


Cranberry Cake and brown sugar bacon.

This cake was awesome! W and I put it together last night. Will make again, maybe with some orange zest and whipped cream as a holiday treat.

Happy Thanksgiving! Now I’m off to make pies.
