This recipe for Nantucket Cranberry Pie is so easy and so good. This is a delicious light sponge, full of juicy cranberries, crunchy pecans and a crisp sugary crust. What’s not to love?! There are many variations of Nantucket cranberry pie online, some using walnuts rather than the pecans I like to use in my recipe. One thing is for certain though MeShell’s Diner nantucket cranberry pie is the best. Best of all it’s great to cook in any campervan or motorhome.

This is cooked in a conventional oven in our motorhome, but could definitely be baked in the Omnia Stove top oven too!
