Holiday Cranberry Orange Cake
This cake uses Eggs as the only leavening, so it's important to beat them the full 5 minutes until they are a light lemony color and will sheet off the back of a spoon. Every bite gives you a mouth full of Cranberries with the great flavor of Orange. The nuts provide just enough crunch to add needed texture. Yummy! Drizzling a Confectioners Sugar Icing over the top and you have a pretty darn perfect cake!
Pre-heat oven to 350°
Servings: 15 servings
Place the Eggs and Sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat on low-med for 5 minutes until Lemony colored and slightly thickened. Add the Butter, Orange Extract and Orange Zest. Beat until combined, about 1 minute. This should "sheet off a spoon," so you know it is the right consistency.
Stir in the Flour by hand, a half cup at a time until combined. Then stir in the chopped Cranberries and the Walnuts.
Spread into a greased 9x13" pan and smooth.
Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and let cool for about one hour.
In a small bowl, combine the Confectioners Sugar with the water. Spoon into a Sandwich sized bag. Cut off the tip and pipe the Icing all over the cake.
That's it. Enjoy!
