1 cup mashed potatoes
2 cups canned cranberry sauce, whole berry
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 3/4 cups quick cooking oatmeal
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup chopped nuts

  4. Fold in oatmeal.
  5. Dump flour over the top and sprinkle baking powder evenly over the top of the flour.  Using a fork gently blend baking powder into flour.  Continue blending with the fork until the flour and baking powder have been absorbed into a stiff batter.
