Hi Moms, this is yet another interesting recipe which has a good mixture of fruit and nut. The orange juice used in the recipe gives it a unique and refreshing flavor. You can replace cranberry with some other berry and pecan nuts with walnut. The recipe is inspired by the Cranberry/Pecan Cake make @ www.joybaker.com.
