Mini Cranberry Bundt Cakes

Mini Cranberry Bundt Cakes

OK, this is one of those tricks in taking the ordinary to the extraordinary.

I took my favorite cranberry bread recipe, which happens to be the one my mom used to make, and made it in a mini bundt pan.  Cranberry Bread is good, but something about making it a mini bundt pan made it really, really good!  Looks festive and tastes fabulous!

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups halved cranberries
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup orange juice
2 Tbsp melted butter
non stick baking spray
powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly spray a mini bundt pan with non stick baking spray.  Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Mix in the cranberries.  In a separate bowl, whisk together beaten egg, orange juice and melted butter.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Stir just until moistened.  Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Remove from oven and remove mini cakes to a cooling rack.  Dust with powdered sugar once cooled.

Serve these Mini Cranberry Bundt Cakes for breakfast, brunch or at a mid morning coffee break.
The cranberry and orange flavor is a delightful combo!
Put on your superhero cape because you can 
take the ordinary and make it something extraordinary!  Yep, that's what it's all about!
