Cranberry Cake

Ingredients 3 cups cranberries 1 cup chopped pecans 2 cups sugar 2 eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup butter, melted 2 tablespoons milk Sweetened whipped cream (optional)

Directions Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Generously grease a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Spread cranberries and pecans over bottom of the dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the sugar. In a medium mixing bowl beat eggs with an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Add remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, melted butter, and milk; beat on low speed just until combined (batter will be thick). Carefully spread batter over cranberries and nuts. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until top is brown and a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack at least 30 minutes. To serve, spoon warm cake into dessert dishes, cranberry side up. If desired, top with sweetened whipped cream. - Makes 12 servings.

Standards: Best or lesser 806-745-5800

The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us to become the-bestversion-of-ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help make them great. We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves.
