Champagne scented and cranberry filled this Cranberry Champagne Cake is just what you need to finish out the year on a special note.
The year is coming to an end and we are going to finish it out the best way I know how – with cake!
Not just any cake though, one that’s full of fizz and sparkle and guaranteed to make everyone ooh and ahh.
I know cookies are traditional to make this time of year but who says you need to stick with tradition all the time? Why can’t you have a little bit of both? After all there’s something special about building a cake and even more fun if you do it with family or friends. That to me is where the holiday memories remain. I always remember baking with my mom during this time of year and some things stayed the same but every now and then she’d toss in a surprise dessert.
This year, let it be this cake. Plus it’s an excuse to pop open a bottle of champagne to sip on alongside while you bake. Can it get any better than that?
I know it might also come of a shock to you that I’m pushing cake.
I’m so not a fancy, multi-layer cake maker but you know what? With the right pans and a little patience, you can make it work. Half the hassle is making sure they come out of the pan with ease. The Circulon® 5-Piece Bakeware Set made my life so much easier, I just might start baking cakes all the time now! I didn’t even grease these pans, just a little bit of parchment on the bottom and they slipped right out when cool. How easy is that?
I could wax poetic about my love of these pans but I bet you want to know why else you should take the time to bake a cake right? Did I mention the cranberry curd or the champagne buttercream? Have I convinced you now? What about those sugared cranberries that give a tart pop with each bite? It all seems like a lot of work but it gets divided into two days time with a lot of breaks.
So go ahead and turn on your favorite Christmas movie or crank up the tunes and head over to the Circulon website to get the recipe now!
