    butter, softened

How To Make cranberry orange cake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Beat 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.
  • 3
    Add 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.
  • 4
    Spread 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.
  • 5
    Let cake cool completely before cutting.
