Solomon Recipes

I started this blog so I could pass along family recipes to my children. Most of these recipes are Eaton recipes.

But, no need to share the last name Solomon. The majority of the recipes are made by me, Mother Goose, my Sister in law, Gretchen and two friends Leta and HK. If you would like to be a contributor, just holla!

Ann Trujillo's Cranberry Cake

What can I say? I have good friends who have good taste buds! Ann also likes recipes from Taste of Home and she recently brought this tart but sweet little number to a luncheon that we had! Holy Deliciousness!

This cake, is more like a bread! It is moist, it has craters of air pockets which lends it to be very airy and light! The cranberries make this not too sweet and just the perfect blend of goodness. It is the perfect treat to bring to a brunch or luncheon!

If you find that you need a little extra yumm to the dish, please add a dollup of fresh whipped topping and then sit back and swoon!

The original Recipe and credit goes to. Marilyn Paradis from Woodburn, Oregon.
