Cranberry Crumb Cake
Part of the fun of cooking and baking is taking a recipe and making it your own. I am always changing something in a recipe to make it fit my family a little better. This recipe originally called out for blueberries and while I love blueberries, I thought it might be fun to give fresh cranberries a try since it is Christmas. As an adult I am better able to appreciate the tartness of cranberries and have learned to enjoy them on and in many things. This recipe is not too sweet and yet sweet enough to add a bit of sweetness to those tart little berries. Remember you can always add blueberries instead.
