Today I am here with spiced cranberry cake recipe. This cake is made in bundt pan using fresh cranberries and warm spices, making it perfect for baking during the holidays. This is the cake I baked for our New year's celebration this year. I read somewhere that cakes baked in ring shape (like bundt cakes) are very lucky when baked for the new year day. I am not sure if it is true or someone has made up the story but I thought this would be the right time to use my bundt pan which had been lying untouched for a really long time. We love cranberries a lot - both fresh and the dried ones. When I saw fresh cranberries in the store, I couldn't resist myself from getting it. I wanted to bake with these cranberries in the bundt pan. I have already posted a bundt cake recipe with cranberry - Cranberry Coffee Cake, the cake that I baked for 2014 new year. So this cake I wanted some variation and decided to use spices and nuts. I didn't do much decoration for the cake, except dusting it with icing sugar and then added some sugared cranberries. Everyone at home loved the cake.
- I used a 12 cup bundt pan for baking this cake. In case if you are not having it, then you can use any other pan too.
- Accordingly if you need, you can adjust the recipe. The ratio is for 1 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/4 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of yogurt, 1-2 Tablespoon of milk and adjust the rest accordingly.
- I have used pecans here. You can use other nuts of your choice too.
- Baking time varies with each oven and based on the pan you use. So check yours accordingly.
