For this recipe do not whip the egg whites separately, this will cause your cake to be light on the top and dense with fruits at the bottom (Experience is a great teacher!)

Coating the fruits with flour prevents it from sinking to the bottom while baking.

Adding cranberry sauce is optional, but it does give an extra mile push to your cake. See how to make the sauce here- https://gingersaltnpepper.com/2015/12/21/cranberry-sauce-recipe/
