2016-03-09T08:19:04.335-08:00

I've made this amazing cake every Thanksgiving (and the week after and the week after and the week after...) since you first posted. Today my 8 year old niece requested it for her birthday. Luckily I have a bag of frozen cranberries.

Okay honestly I might've commented on this 5-year-old post before but in case I haven't: THIS CAKE, guys. I've made it so many times and given the recipe to so many people and it is always amazing, even . Made muffins with the batter once (liners were key there, heh) and they were also great. I almost never have kirsch around, but brandy/rum/whatever is also good and a bit of orange zest can be nice as well. It's a staple for winter holiday mornings as well because it does somehow pass as either a decadent coffee cake or a completely respectable dessert cake.

Oh also we call it Fucking Cranberry Cake. Because of your story, of course, and also because it is that delicious.

2013-11-22T16:16:03.383-08:00

This may be a really stupid question, but do you have to cook the cranberries first? Or, do you just rinse them, remove stems and add to the batter?

2013-01-06T16:42:21.264-08:00

i've been making this 3-4 times every winter for the last 3 years. it's a nice combo of rich vanilla pound-cake like texture and tart cranberries. it's really good cold from the fridge, where it becomes even more dense. i LOVE it and so does everyone else! thanks for the recipe.

2011-12-10T20:23:17.722-08:00

I made this for a Christmas party and used Chambord instead of kirsch - it was a hit! Thanks for this recipe.

I am making this right now and I forgot the other 1/2 stick of butter. Should i be worried? I think I might be ok...

2011-11-29T14:37:53.409-08:00

This cake does indeed kick ass. I made it to take to my boyfriend's parents' house for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. Even the 13 year old nephew was all OMG this is really good.

I made it as a cranberry-orange cake, with Grand Marnier instead of the kirsch and the zest of two oranges. Oh, and I gave the cake a light dusting of confectioner's sugar, just to make it look a little more festive. I'll definitely be making this again. Thank you!

2011-11-17T12:04:27.454-08:00

I made this cake for the first time last year (twice), just shared the recipe at a bridal shower when we were asked to submit a "favorite recipe," and I can't wait to make it again for Thanksgiving morning breakfast! Thank you, it's every bit as delicious as it looks!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOUR BLOG, and I visit regularly to get my ROTFLMAO on! (I'm just 'revisiting' the cranberry episode and decided to share) I am seriously in love with you (dump the BF and I'll be yours forever) as well as your site. Please don't change a thing, including your fabulous use of words! It's part of what makes you so charming. And oh yeah, this is the only way I'll ever refer to cranberries from now on and I'll smile and think of you...

2010-09-24T07:19:48.842-07:00

This was wonderful. Can't wait to make again. I didn't have enough cranberries so did almost a 50 50 blend of cranberries and frozen blueberries which I tossed in abit of flour. Came out excellent. I had company coming so I added some cassis to my whip cream bombe to serve along side. The dollop of cream really made your cake dinner party worthy. Thank you for sharing. Great blog by the way!

2010-07-28T19:43:25.087-07:00

I bake ALOT, and consider myself a pretty good cook, esp. desserts. Well let me just saw, of the dozens of desserts I love, this is my favorite. It is dangerous to have in the house. Love it.

2009-12-22T12:13:10.654-08:00

Hello, thank you for this recipe. I don't have kirsch but will use Combier, an orange liquer, in its place. I had a question about using frozen cranberries... do I use them the same or is there anything I should do to them first? TIA - Sharon

2009-12-21T10:12:41.070-08:00

Re: rising cranberries. I've seen recipes, perhaps involving blueberries, that suggest sprinkling some of the flour over the berries, just to coat them, before adding them to a batter. Might work with cranberries, too.

2009-12-21T09:32:30.724-08:00

Lisa - Hmm, I'm not really sure. I would just be sure to give it all a good stir to ensure even distribution next time.

2009-12-20T20:24:10.287-08:00

Garrett - I had a spare bag of cranberries lingering in the fridge and begging for an amazing dish. This was it. The flavor is amazing, but...why did all my berries seem to come to the top of the cake? Seriously. This one seems like a no-brainer, but my berries simple refused to stay put. They're pretty all clustered at the top, but...the rest of the cake is rather, um, cakey! What did I do wrong??

2009-12-18T11:26:29.484-08:00

I was smitten by this cake from the photo, and my leftover Thanksgiving cranberries were just waiting to be put to good use. I whipped it up (a half batch, baked in a 8x8 pan) on a Sunday night, and my roommate (who claims to not like sweets) ate 2/3s of it by Tuesday! Delicious.

2009-12-01T20:21:38.772-08:00

I found 12-oz bags of cranberries on sale for $2.50 each yesterday and thought of you and this post, Garrett!

Also, re: potty mouths like ourselves, all I can say is... hey, it's my blog which means I get to express myself however I so choose. *insert snappy hand gesture here*

My friend just gave me a recipe for a cranberry cake not so different from this one. I'm debating which one to make... nah, I think I'll make both. Because excess is fun like that.

2009-12-01T16:38:31.396-08:00

Wonderful! The first bite caused an explosion of delicious tart cranberrry mingled with sweet, moist, dense cake. Frankly I was afraid the 2 cups of sugar would produce an overly sweet cake, but the balance was perfect. I served it at an early meeting this morning, and six women (who profess to all be on diets) scarfed it up in minutes! I garnished the platter with sugared cranberries. What a beautiful presentation!

I've already purchased more fresh cranberries just to make this wonderful cake again.

Hi there, new commenter...
I was so impressed by the photographs that I had to make it for thanksgiving... Much to my surprise the recipe was quick, easy, didn't-end-up-ruined, and delicious. The vanilla cake and sour cranberries were delightful together.

2009-11-09T19:48:52.766-08:00

Alicia - I trust you have enough faith in yourself to tell when something is mixed well enough. The cake is forgiving so don't fret about having a machine or not. =)

2009-11-09T17:49:56.845-08:00

Mmmm. Next time you post a recipe for some baked goods could you remember that not all of us have machines to help us beat eggs, beat butter with extracts, mix flour into things. It means that one has to guess at the length of time something is mixed.

2009-11-09T07:10:31.410-08:00

Linda - Nope, no baking soda in the recipe. Still if it worked out for you then that's just great too. =)

2009-11-09T02:44:47.768-08:00

I made this yesterday and it is terrific. However, I noticed that there is no baking powder in the recipe. This made me a little nervous, so I added one teaspoon. Was this an oversight or was I just being overly cautious?
