Cranberry Cake Recipe

This delicious Cranberry Cake is perfect for holiday season get togethers! The tartness of the cranberries along with the buttery cake is perfect.

When your husband tells you that the cake you made is by far the best recipe you’ve ever made, I think it’s safe to say that recipe is a win! This Cranberry Cake is the perfect Christmas cake! And it’s so easy to make too.

While this cake is called a Christmas Cranberry Cake, don’t let the name fool you! Cranberries are plentiful October through December. It would be a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving dessert table as well! 

After the thanksgiving holiday, cranberries become hard to find. So be sure to pick up a few bags and freeze them to make delicious recipes like this Christmas Cranberry Cake! I am a huge fan of all things cranberry and have been since I was a kid! 

 

Cranberry Bundt Cake

I personally love a good bundt cake. You will see them a lot on this site. This Cranberry Cake comes out just amazing in the bundt pan thanks to the crust that forms in the pan. The cranberries give this cake just enough sweetness and it has a delicious buttery texture. 

Cranberry Bundt Cake

One of the most stressful moments of any cake making endeavor is removing your cake from the pan. Let the cake cool for about 15 minutes in the pan on a cooling rack. Then turn the cake upside down onto the cooling rack and let the cake naturally fall out onto the rack. 

If you love cranberries as much as I do, be sure to also check out some of these other delicious recipes using them!
