Eat at Home and Save – Christmas Cranberry Cake

Christmas Cranberry Cake

A friend of mine recently made this cake and was kind enough to share. When she told me it only has six ingredients, I was intrigued. 5 of the 6 I already had in my supply and only the fresh cranberries would need to be purchased. Imagine my delight when I found a bag of whole cranberries at Costco for the low, low price of $1.99! And get this, that one bag is enough to make four batches of this heavenly cake! I made one cake (9×13″) and froze the rest of the cranberries to use when I make the cake again (and I will be making this cake again!)

The recipe goes together in a jiffy. I absolutely recommend using real butter (I don’t think it will come out the same if you substitute). Make sure it’s whipped long enough as this is what will make the cake moist and fluffy. The slightly sweet cake offsets the tangy taste of the cranberries in this festive and delicous cake that is perfect for holiday parties!

This is a fantastic cake that is easy on the budget and great for sharing. The pieces can be cut small and hold their shape nicely. You really don’t even need a fork, just pick up the slice like a brownie. Recipe found on Barefeet in the Kitchen, Cranberry Christmas Cake. Better print out a few copies and take them with you because your friends will definitely ask for the recipe!
