Cranberry and Cashew Loaf

May 27, 2013

I watched a great cooking show which celebrated fruits and nuts from around the world.  I am so blessed that I live in a country where I can acquire beautiful ingredients cheaply and taste the amazing flavours to enhance my recipes.  Cranberries and Cashew nuts are now very common in England, they are used as snacking food but I love to use nuts and fried fruit in recipes.  I made this cake in the spur of the moment.  I couldn’t resist.  My mother really enjoyed my food.  I really believe when it comes to cooking we should just act on our impulses.
