Cranberry Lemon Cake

While our mixes are stand-alone good, we like to find new ways to use them. That said, we’ve come up with an easy way to use our Classic Pound Cake Mix to make a Cranberry Lemon Cake. I found some dried cranberries in the cupboard leftover from the Christmas holidays that needed to be used. A lemon was resting peacefully in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator as well. Not for long, “my little pretties!”

The Classic Pound Cake Mix is a versatile mix, so I thought my found ingredients, along with a few eggs, a little oil, and some water would make a nice combination. Don’t you just love it when your hunches turn out spot on? I do! I took the eggs, water, and oil and mixed them together with the mix, then stirred in fresh squeezed lemon juice, the cranberries, and a few chopped pecans for added crunch. This combination baked up to be a tasty treat and so easy to make.
