Why I Love This Recipe

I got this from Giada Laurentiis - it is very YUMMY especially when it is served warm!

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4C orange-flavored liqueur (Grand Marnier)
1/4C dried cranberries
1t ground cinnamon
1/2 orange zested
1C AP Flour
1 1/2t baking powder
1/4t salt
4 eggs
8T butter, melted (1 stick)
1/3C sugar
1t vanilla extract
2C diced peeled apples (about 2 medium apples)
1/2C chopped walnuts, toasted
Ice Cream (For Serving)


Preheat the oven to 350 F.

In a small saucepan, heat the orange liqueur. Turn off the heat and add the cranberries, making sure that all the cranberries are submerged in the liquid. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and the orange zest. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Add the apples, walnuts and drained cranberries. Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 8 X 8 X 2 inch glass baking dish or 8" cake pan. Bake until a wooden skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Serve while still warm - cut into squares or wedges and serve with ice cream.
