2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1/ 3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups sliced cranberries

Sugar for sprinkling

Directions:

Heat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan.
In large bowl, using a wire whisk, stir the first 4 ingredients until well blended.
Combine the eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla and whisk them in.
Stir in cranberries and walnuts and pour into the prepared pan.
