I made this Cranberry-Orange Pound Cake over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2011. I looked at the photo online, and I said boy this looks good. Well I tried it out, and it came out absolutely perfect. I love recipes that you can follow to the letter and they come out perfect and this is one of them. Fresh cranberries are the best, just do a coarse, fine chop.
