Cranberry Cornbread

During the holidays, I make several pans of this sweet cake-like corn bread for family and friends. Whole blueberries--coated in flour--can be used in place of the cranberries.

    Best recipe ever! We ate it like cake on Thanksgiving and I made a second one with turkey soup. It went just as fast. Loved it! Thanks

    Excellent recipe. I used my food processor to chop up the cranberries. I also substituted half the flour with wheat flour.
