Jam-packed with cranberries, orange flavor, and tons of eggnog glaze, this stunning bundt cake is so simple to mix up for a last-minute holiday dessert and you’ll be eating every last crumb!
Where there’s Fridays…there needs to be cake. I’m making it a thing, guys.
Preferably a completely stunner of a bundt cake jammed with cranberries and orange-y flavors whilst drowning in eggnog glaze.
^^^ perfect. Honestly my perfect cake world.
Can every day be Friday? That would honestly just be the eggnog icing on the bundt cake.
Okay, guys. It’s time to talk about your cake goals for the weekend. Did you know that cake is really one of the best goals a person could have on a weekend?
Also, it’s about the only form of non-laziness that I can actually muster up, to be honest.
So this base for this cake is pretty much standard for a bundt cake. Butter + sugar get all creamy together, then in go the eggs, buttermilk, greek yogurt, ect to ensure we’re gonna have the moistest, butteriest cake base ever.
I also throw orange juice concentrate and a tooooon of grated orange zest into the batter because hello, orange + cranberries = cake bliss.
Our basic dry ingredients include flour, baking soda, salt, and a pinch of nutmeg and cloves to give this cake that unmistakable winter-y flavor.
One nice long trip to the oven later…cake lust is about to get REAL.
But not yet!!! Wait for the eggnog glaze to adorn every inch of this bundt cake bliss and you’ll definitely be thanking me later.
Either thanking me or hating me, actually. This cake is really just that good.
And yes, you are likely gonna want to cut those slices XXXXX-large.
