This is great for Christmas Brunch!
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1 cup butter, slightly softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 T. grated orange zest
1 cup orange juice (fresh is best)
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
3/4 cup chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour a 10 inch angel food cake pan or bundt pan.
Measure dry ingredients together and sift or mix with a wire whisk. Set aside.
Cream butter, sugar, and orange zest with an electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each. Alternately add flour mixture and juice. Gently stir in cranberries and nuts.
Pour into prepared pan and smooth evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 30 minutes before turning out onto a cake plate. Server warm but it’s great the next day also, gets more moist.
