Not moist

I would try to make them more moist


They came out rock hard. Had the throw them away ­čśę

Will definately make again

We really liked them. I did add a bit more than 2 cups of cranberries only because that was what I had left in the bag and I did not chop them up, just threw them in whole. I also used pecans instead of walnuts since again that was what I had. I cut back the sugar to 1 cup and for extra flavour added a teaspoon of pure lemon extract. I thought the batter consistency was fine. I used extra large eggs. Perhaps those who found the batter too thick are using a smaller egg.

UH in Arizona - don't be discouraged!

I've been cooking since a bit before your age, and I'm 62 now, so that's lot of recipes tried, and a lot of batters, stews, whathaveyou thrown way. I taught my own children that, if they're not wakstebasketng at least one failure a month or so, they're not being adventurous enough. So keep at it, and you'll get this stuff, and have a happy time doing it. I think you might want to check how you creamed the butter and sugar, next time. Sugar looks like sand - you want the butter and sugar combination to look like fluffy snow. Just use a fork to mush things around, but do so for a minute, even two, and I think that will help. And don't forget to add that pinch of salt - baking powder can't go its rising trick without that essential chemical. Congratulations on trying, and keep at it! Cooking is a joy, especially when the successes are shred with friends. The failures? Get a dog - she'll always be glad to help you hide the evidence of the crime.

Made this recipe but instead of fresh cranberries I used Ocean Spray dried cranberries. It was really good. I'm making another batch now. Kids and hubby loved them.
