Christmas is coming in just a few days, so we’re whipping up all the holiday classics! When it come to holiday flavors, it’s all about the cinnamon, eggnog, gingerbread, and cranberries! If like the majority you cringe at can cranberry sauce, I’m right there with you!
However, using fresh whole cranberries is completely different and even better than dried in my opinion. It’s more tart, has no added sugars or preservatives and adds character to all baked goods more so than the dried variety. If you’re not crazy about the flavor combo, you could also do lemon and cranberry, but there is something about oranges that captures the season! Plus, oranges are in season during Christmas so they pack even more flavor. Bonus, after you’re done squeezing them, you can throw them in a pot of boiling water with some cinnamon and cranberries and make an effortless homaged potpourri!
What’s fab about this cake? Everything! It’s my staple 1 bowl cake, it’s quick, easy, affordable, packs tons of orange flavor, notes of tart cranberries, it’s fluffy, has aesthetic appeal, perfect for the holiday, can easily be turned into a layer cake, and pairs perfectly with the orange cream cheese icing!
