Cran-Apple Walnut Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
I rely on applesauce to keep this crowd-pleasing cake tender and moist. The blend of nuts, cranberries and apples complements the subtle hint of wheat flour for terrific taste.—Martha Pollock, Oregonia, Ohio

"This is a wonderfully moist and tasty snack cake. The cranberries really bring it to life. A++"

MY REVIEW

"Great recipe. I had frozen cranberries, so I just tossed them in the food processor and coarsely chopped instead of cutting them in half. A real time save and it tasted great. Sprinkling with powdered sugar just before serving is a must. If it sits too long the powdered sugar dissolves so it can't be seen."

"Re: Cran-Apple Walnut Cake

Great recipe. I was short on brown sugar, so I substituted with the Splenda Brown sugar and it was great. Question: I see that beverlymrickert used dried cranberries. Did she soak them in water first or were they added right from the package?

"My husband and I don't like overly sweet desserts, so this cake seemed perfect, I got rave reviews from my husband, sister, and neighbors, everyone love it. A very moist, tasty cake. I used from from the bog cranberries that were truly a delight. My 4 year old nephew helped make the cake as he loves to help bake, and he even liked the tart berries. So it is at least 4 stars in my book."
