* Did you know that one shouldn’t cook using hot tap water due to a possible higher content of toxic metals or contaminants? The best way to use hot water is to heat cold tap water in a kettle or on the stove in a cooking pot before using it in your recipe.

** Make sure that the product you choose has been packaged in an environment where the risk of contamination is low.

  5. Add hot water to the measuring cup until you reach a total of 180 ml (3/4 cup) of liquid.
  6. Add this liquid mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir gently with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
  7. Add honey and dried cranberries and stir again until just moistened. Do not stir too much.
  8. Place the mixture in a 2-litre (9 “x 5”) pan.
  9. Bake in a preheated 160 ° C (320 ° F) oven for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
