Aunty Vera's Kitchen - Christmas Cranberry Cake

Hello Happy Crafters.... it's the weekend and that means it's time for.......

I needed to make something special for an End of Year / Christmas morning tea this week and remembered that I had saved an awesome looking recipe on Pinterest for a Christmas Cranberry Pound Cake. Well that was it! I just HAD to make it! Follow THIS LINK to the original post and recipe (then tell me how you could possibly resist?!! lol)......

Here is mine....

 As you may guess from the picture I totally forgot to get the camera out when it was whole!!

I so totally recommend this recipe! It makes a beautiful moist cake. I was worried that the frozen cranberries I used would be too tart but the masses of sugar and white chocolate in the cake totally negated that cranberry scrunchy face effect.

I probably chose a bad slice for taking pics... there WERE a lot more cranberries in the cake. I promise! They just seemd to have migrated to the parts that I DIDN'T photograph!!

I did make a few changes to the recipe. I only used 1 cup of sugar. Also I didn't bother with the whole melted butter over the top of the batter thing.... basically because I'm lazy (lol) but also since I was icing it, I didn't really see the point.

I also used less icing sugar in the frosting. Add it gradually and taste as you go to get it the way you like it.

It's a fairly quick and easy recipe to make..... and just lovely for this time of year. My friends absolutely loved it and so did I!

Anyone for a slice of cake and cup of tea?
