This is a very dense cake. We love the combination of cranberry and orange.

Ingredients

3
eggs
2 c
sugar
3/4 c
butter, softened
1 tsp
vanilla
1 tsp
orange zest
1/2 tsp
orange extract
2 c
flour
12 oz
fresh cranberries

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350°F.
2Beat eggs with sugar until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5-7 minutes. The mixture should almost double in size. (The eggs work as the leavening in this recipe, so don't skip this step). When finished beating, the mixture should form a ribbon when you lift the beaters out of the bowl.
3Add the butter, vanilla, orange zest and orange extract; mix two more minutes. Stir in the flour until just combined. Add the cranberries and stir to mix thoroughly. The batter will be very thick and resemble cookie dough.
4Spread batter in a buttered 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
5Let cake cool completely before cutting.
