    Can I swap the dried cranberries for fresh? Would I need to change anything else in the recipe? Looks yummy.

        Thank you. I wasn’t sure if the fresh would release liquid. I’m making it for my parents Christmas gathering, and your gingerbread bundt cake for the in-laws. Thanks a bunch!! Merry Christmas from the Carolinas!
