Cranberry Christmas Cake

Cranberry Christmas Cake

Learn to cook a great classic cranberry christmas cake, simple and easy to make.


● 3 eggs,
● 2 cups sugar,
● 3/4 cup butter, softened,
● 1 teaspoon vanilla,
● 2 cups all-purpose flour (see note below for gluten-free alternative),
● 12 oz or 340 grams fresh cranberries.


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF or 176ºC 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.
2. Add the butter and vanilla; mix two more minutes. Stir in the flour until just combined. Add the cranberries and stir to mix throughout.
3. Spread in a buttered 9×13 pan.
4. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. (I baked mine for 43 minutes.)
5. Let cool completely before cutting into small slices. I cut mine into fairly small pieces, about 1″x2″.

Bon Appetit!!!
