Cravings for sweets

We just had to have some cake today and gave me a chance to do a little baking.  Lemon and fresh frozen whole cranberries bundt cake wasn't to difficult and satisfied the taste buds.  It's just a buttermilk lemon bundt cake I added some whole cranberries to with a thick lemon glaze for topping.  Adding fresh frozen whole or chopped cranberries to lemon cake is one of my favorite things to do and adding a thin, thick or no glaze..the cranberries pop and show off their vivid color and add such a lovely tart flavor.


 


                                  


 


                                                              


                                Added:  I forgot to mention this was baked using King Arthur's new Unbleached Cake Flour -  Can't really tell any difference in flavor or texture from using regular cake Flour.

Mmmmm....Buttermilk and lemons....


I actually hesitated clicking on the title to your post- now I'm in trouble because I think I may have all the ingredients needed to make this cake...maybe tonight...


Mouthwateringl! Looks like you really have a knack at all types of baking :-)

Thank you, inlovewbread!   I used 2 TBsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice and always add at least 2 TBsp. zest from my organic lemons.  Giving the cranberries a light dusting of flour helps them from sinking to the bottom. When I take my bundt cakes out of the pan.  I like the top side of the cake up...I know not supposed to do a fancy bundt cake that way...I like the way it looks much better than the patterned bottom side up even though the frosting covered it up.  I noticed my cranberries where a little freezer dry in this cake..usually they are a lot juicier.
