Cranberry Christmas Cake


Merry Christmas!!  Let's share a slice of Cranberry Christmas Cake  today, with a cup of Christmas Tea. 

I'm using my Johnson Brothers Olde English Countryside teacup.



Yield: It depends on how big the slices are

Cranberry Christmas Cake

This cake can serve as a coffee cake or dessert. You could use a dollop of whipped cream or a sprinkling of powdered sugar.

ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter,  softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 12 oz fresh cranberries

instructions:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5-7 minutes. The mixture should almost double in size. The eggs work as your leavening agent in this recipe, so do not skip this step. This mixture should form a ribbon when you lift the beaters out of the bowl. Add the butter and vanilla; mix two more minutes. Stir in the flour until just combined. Add the cranberries and stir to mix throughout.
  2. Spread in a buttered 9x13 pan.  Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean.  Let cool completely before cutting into small slices.

These two granddaughters came by the day before Christmas Eve for presents, lunch and cookie decorating.  Didn't they do a great job?

My other six grands spent Christmas Eve at my house.  I always give them pj's and most of them change into them before they go home.  We had lots of fun!  


Merry Christmas Blessings to each and every one  of you!




Thank you for your visit!  xo

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

    So fun that the grands spend the night! Half of our do and that is the best part - watching them be so excited. We take turns and the little five year old was so cute about waiting her turn, trying to figure out how soon she would have a turn again! Merry Merry Christmas!

  16. How sweet to buy your grands Christmas pajamas and that they come by and enjoy Christmas Eve with you. And that you have some coming earlier and decorating cookies. They will always remember those times.

  18. Kitty, I love cranberries, so I'm definitely going to make this (though, of course, I will cut the sugar back to 1 1/2 cups - you know me!). Looks so pretty on your Johnson Bros dishes.
