This sounds like a great recipe. Can’t wait to try it. Sounds like it would be so moist and delicious. I love this site so much. Every recipe that I have tried turns out so beautifully. I drink 4 ounces of cranberry juice every morning. It’s a great way to start my morning off. Sometimes I’ll also have a cranberry- pineapple muffin to go with it. Yum 😋!
