I stated before how much I love bundt cakes. You can use the simplest cake base and they will always be beautiful! Dress them up with a simple glaze and you have a showstopper.

Since I have learned this tip to get them out of the pan without the tiniest bit sticking to it – they have also became the easiest cakes to make! You need to try this tip – so you can do a happy dance when your bundt cake pops out of the pan and leaves it virtually clean! Just look at this beauty!

For the cake base, I used my trusted Lemon Bundt Cake recipe. I skipped the lemon and added fresh cranberries.

I made a super simple white chocolate glaze and dressed up the cake.

The cake batter is thick enough that the berries didn’t sink into the bottom of the cake. They dispersed evenly through out the cake!

    Anna – It says add the dry ingredients together….and zest. How much zest? Lemon or orange? I’m not finding it in the recipe. Thanks -

    • CrunchyCreamySw

      Thanks for catching that. I forgot to remove it from the recipe as I used my Lemon Bundt Cake recipe. All fixed now!

      Hi Julie! Thank you so much and welcome to CCS!

  • Kimberly Mayer

    Hello Anna! Glad I found your website – I have fresh cranberries to use up and I haven’t used my silicone bundt pan in a while! I don’t have white chocolate on hand – just dark chocolate. I’m sure it will be just as amazing.

    Just discovered your blog while searching for cranberry receipts. You have wonderful photos and a great collection of delicious treats. Definitely adding your list to my bookmarks!
