Cranberry Duff: A Pictorial

Photos are a must for me when I cook. Perhaps because I'm a visual leaner. Perhaps you are too? Either way, I made my Nanny Maureen's Cranberry Duff that I shared with She Cooks. Since the recipe is obscure, I thought I'd share the steps picture by picture!

First things first...Here's my beautiful Nanny with my adorable sister on her third birthday. I'm pretty sure that's not Cranberry Duff cake!

~2 Cups Bisquick
~4 teaspoons white sugar
~2 Cups fresh cranberries

~Mix Bisquick/sugar with enough milk so it's dough-like consistency (hmmmm....I'd guess that's about a half cup or so? start small...)
~Add the cranberries

~Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes or until a knife you poke in the middle comes out clean

before the fiery furnace

and after! hello beautiful!


~2 Cups white sugar
~4 tablespoons flour
~Whisk together. Add 1 Cup hot water

~In a saucepan, mix above ingredients with half stick butter
~When melted, add 3 tablespoons cider vinegar (more or less to taste...I add 4, but my mom adds less)
~Add 1 teaspoon vanilla
~Let simmer on low-medium low heat until thick. Be sure to stir constantly or that bad boy will stick something fierce to the bottom of your pot!

~Slice into scrumptious portions. Drizzle (or ladle!) sauce on top.

~Enjoy! Oh, and make sure Watson and Newman approve!

I remember my grandma used to make this!! Not sure where she found the recipe since I am a Wisconsin girl, but I remember her making something like this when I was just a youngsta. Thanks for bringing back such a fond childhood memory, I forgot all about it.

Kandi, that's wild! I haven't met anyone outside my family who's heard of this recipe! Cool! Did your grandma ever tell you the origins? We can't figure where it came from...

Bon appetite! :)
