Cranberry Cake

This is such a festive cake for either Thanksgiving or Christmas and so moist. My son who does not care much for cranberries, likes this cake.


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
  • Ad

  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans
  • whipped cream, optional


In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with sugar until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5 minutes. Add butter and extract; beat 2 minutes. Stir in flour just until combined. Stir in cranberries and pecans. Spread in a greased 13x9x2 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 to 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream if desired

I am not much of a baker but I am going to give this recipe a try! I love the idea of pecans stirred in with the cranberries! (11/06/2009)

Cranberry Cake

I made this and its delicious! Everyone ate it all in less than 2 minutes. I thought I did something wrong as it came out more like a scone than a fluffy cake, but whatever I did it really worked! I also was out of pecans so I used walnuts which worked fine too. YUM! Thanks for the recipe! (11/24/2009)
