Cranberry Breakfast Cake


 Cranberry Breakfast Cake  

We suffered a fatality in our home today.  My trusty Nikon Bridge Camera, who has been my constant companion for the past three years died a quick and irreparable death immediately following the taking of  half of the photos of this lovely cake.  Hence the lousy photos at the base of this post, of the individual pieces.  Sigh  . . .



I had to take them with my phone and suffice it to say . . .  my phone photos are highly inadequate.  I don't understand these people that take brilliant photos with their phones.  I must not have it on the right setting or something, because UGH! 


Cranberry Breakfast Cake 

Anyways, don't let the crappy photos deter you from wanting to bake this fabulous breakfast cake!  It really is delicious!  Stogged full of lots of berries and toasted walnuts! 


It cuts like a dream and is so delicious warm  . . .  the berries tart and delicious against the sweetness of the cake batter . . .  with that lovely nutty crunch of walnuts.  Perfect with your morning cuppa! 



Its equally good when served warm as a dessert with scoops of cold vanilla ice cream  . . .  or yes, clotted cream, pouring cream or even warm custard sauce. 



I really, really hope that you will be able to bake one up for your family over these next few weeks.  I just know it will be enjoyed immensely!

Cranberry Breakfast Cake

prep time: 10 minscook time: 40 minstotal time: 50 mins
Easy to make and super light, this goes great in the morning with a hot cuppa.  Interestingly enough it is also great served as a dessert, warm, with some vanilla bean ice cream!

ingredients:

140g plain flour (1 cup)
190g white sugar (1 cup)
1/4 tsp salt
200g fresh or frozen cranberries (2 cups)
45g chopped toasted walnuts (1/2 cup)
120g butter, melted (1/2 cup)
2 large free range eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp almond extract
Icing sugar to dust

instructions:


Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/gas mark 4.  Butter a 9 inch round cake tin well.  Set aside.

Whisk
 the flour, sugar and salt together.  Stir in the cranberries and
walnuts.  Mix together the melted butter, eggs and almond extract.  Stir
 into the dry ingredients.  The batter will be very stiff if you are
using frozen berries.  Spread into the prepared pan.  Bake or 40 to 45
minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean and
 the top is golden brown.  Serve warm, dusted with icing sugar.

Can you see the difference in the photos?  Makes me so sad.  My camera is like my right arm.  I don't know what I am going to do.  I may have to sacrifice my credit card and bite the bullet.  Sigh . . .  two steps forward and three steps back . . . that's life for you! Bon Appetit!

  2. I don't think your phone pix are nearly so lousy as you think they are. How did the camera die?

    The cake looks delish and since I have a whole unopened bag of cranberries, I might have to whip this up this week. I wonder if you could adjust the time and make mini-versions and how much. I could add to my baked good deliveries. Or I suppose I could cut off a good piece for each...

  4. Oh Marie, I'm sorry to hear about your camera. I know how that feels when it just suddenly dies :( I do hope that you are able to get a replacement soon, even though I understand that it's an expense that you just don't need at the moment.

    However, I just love the sound of this. I think I'd prefer it as a dessert (with some "proper custard"). Another one to try this week . I think I have everything in the house that I need. Yum!
