Cranberry Breakfast Cake

 Cranberry Breakfast Cake  
We suffered a fatality in our home today.  My trusty Nikon Bridge Camera, who has been my constant companion for the past three years died a quick and irreparable death immediately following the taking of  half of the photos of this lovely cake.  Hence the lousy photos at the base of this post, of the individual pieces.  Sigh  . . .

I had to take them with my phone and suffice it to say . . .  my phone photos are highly inadequate.  I don't understand these people that take brilliant photos with their phones.  I must not have it on the right setting or something, because UGH! 
Cranberry Breakfast Cake 
Anyways, don't let the crappy photos deter you from wanting to bake this fabulous breakfast cake!  It really is delicious!  Stogged full of lots of berries and toasted walnuts! 
Cranberry Breakfast Cake 
It cuts like a dream and is so delicious warm  . . .  the berries tart and delicious against the sweetness of the cake batter . . .  with that lovely nutty crunch of walnuts.  Perfect with your morning cuppa! 
Cranberry Breakfast Cake 
Its equally good when served warm as a dessert with scoops of cold vanilla ice cream  . . .  or yes, clotted cream, pouring cream or even warm custard sauce.

I really, really hope that you will be able to bake one up for your family over these next few weeks.  I just know it will be enjoyed immensely!

Can you see the difference in the photos?  Makes me so sad.  My camera is like my right arm.  I don't know what I am going to do.  I may have to sacrifice my credit card and bite the bullet.  Sigh . . .  two steps forward and three steps back . . . that's life for you! Bon Appetit!
