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

How to Make Cranberry Orange Cake


  • 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.
