Once through the crispy crust it was superb!
The mixture was quite stiff so the cranberries didn't sink at all and were beautifully evenly distributed. I used fewer cranberries than stated in the recipe as my punnet only contained about 220g. It was plenty I think.
It tasted delicious, cranberry and orange being one of my favourite combinations.
It also kept well in a sealed box and the last few slices made an excellent dessert served warm with custard. You can see the recipe here. Apart from the tin, the cooking time, the quantity of cranberries and the addition of the icing I followed it to the letter!
Cuts into 18-20 portions.
