Orange and Cranberry Cake Recipe

image

Welcoming 2016 with a moist orange and cranberry cake.

Distinctive taste of cranberries is rendering a delicious contrast to the sweetness of cake. A perfect balance of sweetness and sourness.

I have used orange zest and orange juice for orange flavor and cranberries used here are the dried ones. If you get hold of fresh cranberries, do use them for this recipe. I have used eggs for this recipe but will soon post an eggless recipe as well.
