“This cake is another outstanding recipe from Food & Drink, LCBO magazine in Canada. AND it is a health concious recipe as well. The magazine notes that it could be served for breakfast as well. It works great in muffins, too. You can omit the cranberries - or sub with raisin etc - If you are not a fan of cranberries, but they really do add a certain something. You can add 1 tsp of vinegar to regular milk and let it sit for 5 min if you do not have buttermilk.”
