I'll put the kettle on, shall I?
ecipe* courtesy of Shelagh-in-Toronto, using all the cranberries that Scooter and Hamish didn't make off with to hide under sofas and behind cupboards.
A sweet, easy, interesting (I'm trying to cut down on using the word delicious but it is!) tea loaf; pecans and raisins added. No need for butter, but, you know, if you want to......
One is for Roger and Tim (happy birthday, Professor!) and one is for me and anyone who cares to pop in. Tea loaves and afternoon tea were made for each other.
Thank you for all your other cranberry suggestions too!
