Me and my mom made this together many times, and we LOVE it. Great for those who live cake and fruit! And cranberries just add to the awesomeness!!

Added 2 more eggs and turned out fluffier

The first time I made it following the recipe. It was ok, a bit too dense. Second time I added two more eggs,. I mixed the yolk with the butter and sugar and about 1/2 tsp of baking soda, than added the juice and flour, and the beaten egg whites at the end, followed by the nuts and cranberries. Turned out much better, fluffier. Baked it in a brownie pan, ready in 20 mins.

Try adding an Orange Syrup!

My family has been making this recipe for generations for Christmas and I am always so sad when you cant find cranberries in the grocery store! I added a simple orange syrup to the top after baking, made simply by boiling 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water, and orange zest. Let boil for 2 minutes until syrupy, and it adds a sugary crispness to the crust, makes it moist, and looks bakery quality!
