Make this luscious cranberry orange cake recipe using whole berry cranberry sauce and sour cream to make it absolutely delectable.
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 12-cup Bundt® pan; set aside.
Combine 1 cup sugar, butter, eggs, orange zest and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Beat at low speed, gradually adding flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt alternately with sour cream, until well mixed.
Spoon one-third of batter into prepared pan; spread to cover bottom. Spread half of cranberry sauce on top of batter. Repeat layers, ending with batter.
Bake 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; invert onto serving plate. Cool completely.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and nutmeg, if desired. Garnish each serving with currants, orange peel strips and mint leaves, if desired.

I made this cake for Thanksgiving and received a few compliments. I agree with the previous reviewer, be careful with the baking time. I set the timer for 45 minutes and discovered that I left the cake in the oven a bit too long. It wasn't burned but the edges were brown. The middle of the cake was moist and tasty, but the edges were very dry. Also, I will use the entire can of cranberry sauce in the future, rather than divided it into two layers. The sauce sort of disappeared into the layers once the cake was baked.
You could probably use the whole can of cranberry sauce. I only baked this cake for 45-50 min. and it was done. You may want to watch it the last few mintutes. Very tasty with a vanilla/orange glaze. Will use it again for the holidays.

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
