Cranberry Pecan Pound Cake The Southern Lady Cooks

This cranberry pecan pound cake was an experiment that turned out wonderful. This cake is made with a can of jellied cranberry sauce. I think this cake is better the next day, so you can easily make this one in advance!

 

Cranberry Pecan Pound Cake

3 cups of all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups of sugar

1 cup of brown sugar

1 cup of melted butter, unsalted

3 eggs

2 teaspoons of baking soda

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 14 ounce can of jellied cranberry sauce

1 cup of crushed pecans

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a bundt pan. Using a mixer, mix sugar and melted butter together. Add eggs one at a time, continue mixing. Add in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla, cranberry sauce and pecans. Mix well. This will be a thick heavy batter.  Pour evenly into pan. My pan was 3/4 full. Bake for one hour or until it tests done. Let cake cool and add glaze.

Glaze for Cake

2 cups of powdered sugar

4 teaspoons of whipping cream

Mix together. You can add more whipping cream to get desired thickness. Drizzle over cake.

  1. Can this be made as mini Bundt cakes?

  2. Any replacement for cranberry jelly ?
    Dried or fresh cranberries would work?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      No, I don’t think that would work. This isn’t a recipe I would try to alter, the moisture in the jellied cranberry is part of the cake.

  3. Looks interesting and easy… thank you

  4. This cake looks delicious! Can gluten free flour or a gluten free flour blend be substituted for the all purpose flour and would other changes be needed to be made to the recipe? Thanks.

  5. I always wonder if you should sift the flour before measuring.
