I got this recipe from a very old Southern Living Cake Cookbook that was supposed to be traditional southern cakes. It was called Auntie Ann’s Apple Cake. I made it the first time for Thanksgiving and it became a tradition. It’s also a favorite at our church’s annual Cake Auction.

2 cups ground raw cranberries (This is easy to do. Just put the berries in either a food processor or blender and spin until coarsely chopped.)

4 Quarts of breadcrumbs – at least half should be cornbread the rest can be loaf bread, biscuits, rolls, whatever. Save your stale bread in the freezer just for this recipe. Mom would measure these in a gallon tea pitcher.
2-3 Stalks of celery – chopped
2 medium Onions – chopped
2-3 Tbsp. Rubbed Sage
1 Tbsp. Salt
1 Tsp. Pepper
6 1/2 Cups of liquid – broth or milk or a combination, but it needs to contain plenty of fat. So, if you use milk or canned broth that doesn’t contain PLENTY (around 1 1/2 cups) of fat, then add some in the form of melted butter, margarine, oil, or meat drippings. This is really a bread and butter casserole so don’t skimp on the fat, or it will be like bread with no butter.
