apple cranberry cake

I had apples to use up and some cranberries in the freezer.  A quick ingredient search and we had a winner- apple cranberry cake!

apple cranberry cake (
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped, peeled tart apples
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup chopped nuts, if desired 
powdered sugar for dusting

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and oil.  Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; add to egg mixture until combined (batter will be very thick).  Stir in the apples, cranberries and nuts.
Transfer to an 8x4x2 loaf pan (I doubled the recipe and poured it into a 9x13 pan) coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes (40 minutes for a 9x13).  Let cool then dust with powdered sugar
