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....
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!
