Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake Recipe
Makes one cake
- 225 g. butter
- 300 g. sugar
- Zest from 3 oranges
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 310 g. all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¾ cup buttermilk
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 500 g. frozen cranberries
- 300 g. powdered sugar
- 4 Tbsp. milk
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
- Combine the butter, sugar, and orange zest in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until the butter becomes light and fluffy.
- Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a small bowl and add the vanilla extract. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a measuring cup, combine the buttermilk and orange juice.
- When the butter and sugar has become fluffy, add the eggs and vanilla and mix until incorporated. Then add about one third of the flour mixture. Once the flour is incorporated, add half of the buttermilk mixture. Add another third of the flour mixture and follow it with the second half of the buttermilk. Finally, add the remaining flour.
- Mix in the cranberries.
- Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray or coat with butter. Dust the inside of the pan with flour.
- Once the bundt pan is prepared, add the batter and level the top with your hands or a rubber spatula.
- Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for about 45 minutes. Check the cake by inserting a toothpick. If it comes out clean, the cake is ready to come out of the oven.
- While the cake is cooling, make the icing. In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and milk until it reaches the consistency of a glaze.
- When the cake has cooled, remove it from the bundt pan by carefully flipping it onto a plate. Drizzle the icing over the top of the cake and serve.
