An easy recipe for a cake with cranberry topping. The cranberries caramelize in the brown sugar and are deliciously flavored with gingerbread spices. And the cake got a rich flavor. You're likely to want more than one slice.
This is one of my favorite cakes this year. A cake with a caramelized cranberry topping. The cranberries lie in the caramelized sugar, and the flavors are completely balanced.
For me cranberries really belong to winter season, also because of the intense red color. The small fruits make this cake a bit more festive.
And I'm going to make this cake more often for sure.
