Cranberry Crunch Cake

New Jersey is known for its cranberries, and this cake is a delicious way to use them. The marshmallows melt and seep through the cake, making it moist and very tasty. It’s great for brunch or just with a cup of coffee! —Adelaide Krumm, Manasquan, New Jersey

    I haven't made this but I would like to. One thing is this: we are not crazy about marshmallows so what can we substitute it with or can we omit it? Once we have made it, we will be sure to leave a review! :) Thanks, Charles McG
