With only a few ingredients, this cake is lightly sweet, tart and perfect for any occasion!
I am loving cranberries lately. Besides the fact that they are fun and festive, I love how tart they are in baked goods. Yes, this cake does have sugar in it (I mean, come on, it IS the holiday season!) but you need the sugar to balance out the tartness of the cranberries. I used whole wheat pastry flour and just a small amount of butter. It’s a much healthier option than many other desserts out there. And the orange glaze? It’s fantastic. Like lick-your-spoon-and-the-bowl fantastic.
I can’t believe Hanukkah is already here! For those that celebrate Christmas, how many of you feel ready? We have our tree up, our house decorated, some presents bought…that’s about it. So no, I am not really that ready. I am not really feeling panicked (yet) but we still have a few more weeks. I hope all of these delicious Christmas sweets from my fellow bloggers inspire you and your Christmas baking! I know I am feeling inspired!
Did I mention that I am borderline obsessed with the orange glaze?
