The recipe sounds delicious. I think it could easily be made into a sugar free desert. I'm going to give it a try.

Have a great weekend, my friend.

Good Morning Stephanie,
Sorry it's been a while since I've been by. I had some computer problems and that's why I hadn't posted or visited. I did post last Wednesday, but didn't get a chance to visit any. I put up a new post this morning and I have some pictures on there as well. The recipe for the Cran-Rasberry Cake sounds delicious. If you don't mind, please enter me in your Giveaway. When I am done commenting, I will go to your Big Crumbs website and sign up for that. We have still been getting alot of rain around here. It rained 3 times on Friday and then more rain is in the forecast for today. I'm hoping since May is right around the corner that the weather and temperatures will settle down and get back to normal. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Stephanie, I love the looks of your cran-raspberry cake recipe! I'll have to look to see if raspberries are on sale in the stores yet.

Thanks for linking up your recipe in my FIF recipe exchange last week.
