I have fond memories of our women’s ministry kicking off the Christmas season with a Women’s Dinner—ladies would set “themed” tables using their own dishes and centerpieces. Although this was not a contest, it was fun to see all the creative, beautiful tables. That special night included a meal (with a delectable cranberry cake for dessert), a short program and singing Christmas carols. We would leave inspired, filled with a joyfulness that set the tone for the rest of advent. Oh, what a fun night it was each year!
With these memories of the past, we have recreated our own healthier version of that special cranberry short cake. You are sure to enjoy this gluten-free cake along with your holiday guests. This Cranberry Cake and our Raspberry Cranberry Salad are delicious to eat any time of the year. So, if you like cranberries, we encourage you to buy them in season and freeze to use throughout the year.
