There seems to be two distinct camps when it comes to Cranberries, those who love them and those that do not. Guess which side I’m on? I LOVE Cranberries and every Fall I buy several bags to put in the freezer to use over the next many months. Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Relish, Cranberry Chutney, Cranberry Muffins, Cranberry Scones, Cranberry Apple Crisp and more! I already have a few loaves of Cranberry Orange Bread in the freezer so I thought I’d try my hand at creating a Cranberry Orange Cake. Those two flavors go together perfectly, just like bread and butter. This cake is rather dense, more of a coffee cake texture but it is jam packed with fruit and nuts and just bursting with flavor. It’s pretty too. Bright ruby red fruit and flecks of Orange Zest with every bite. Topped off with a Confectioners Sugar drizzle it is really delicious. I wasn’t sure if Sparky would like it but he said, “yep, this one’s a keeper,” so I decided to share it with you all. Cranberries, they’re not just for Thanksgiving, but something to enjoy year round.
This is what we’ll need.
