An easy, seasonal, recipe for the Day of the Holy Innocents
Nigella Lawson's cookbook How to Be a Domestic Goddess includes, in good English fashion, an entire chapter devoted to Christmas. One cake she includes is a suggestion for a lovely dessert to spruce up what is otherwise a dinner consisting of leftovers. For those of us interested in continuing our Yuletide celebrations without taking on extraordinary new baking and cooking projects, it's a great cake, which I have made several times without much trouble. While Nigella doesn't connect it to the Feast of the Holy Innocents, it is a great cake for today because the cranberries give it a decidedly red color (at least on top). And it's a great way to use up extra cranberries!
Here is a link to the recipe for those who don't have her bookbook:
