Quick and Easy Cranberry Cake

Did you grow up with canned cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving?  I didn’t, and I think that’s why I’m so fascinated by the stuff.  Mind you I have NO intention of ever eating it straight from the can, nor would I ever eat it with turkey, ew.  I have however been experimenting with a couple of cans. 

My first recipe was a cranberry scone.  Unfortunately I was so busy playing with the gelatinous goo I forgot to add the baking soda and powder.  It was ugly and in a turn of events that has me questioning the quality of my cooking, my family still ate it.  Let me clarify, as I was getting ready to throw it all out they said, “No, we like them!”  Really?

The next time I went simple, like really simple…here it is…I took a boxed cake mix, replaced the water with a can of cranberry sauce and then followed the instructions as I normally would.

It was awesome, especially with homemade ice cream.

Hmmm, I wonder what other kinds of things I’m going to be able to make with this tangy, can-shaped delicacy?

  1. This honestly cracked me up because growing up I didn't know you could get cranberries any other way than in the can! That is still what I use for Thanksgiving--both the regular and the whole cranberry kind--I LOVE it! :) Also, it never occurred to me to plop than can of cranberries into a mixing bowl. I am totally going to do this!

  2. First off this looks delicious! I cannot wait to try it. I have become a convert to jelly cranberry. I used to make my Mom make homemade growing up for Thanksgiving, as I wouldn't eat the jelly stuff. However, my kids LOVE it, so now I buy it.

  3. Interesting cake recipe. Sounds yummy...I may have try this for Thanksgivng! Thanks for sharing!
