This Brown Sugar Cranberry Cake is the perfect ending to any holiday dinner! It features a moist brown sugar spice cake, brown sugar meringue buttercream, and a tangy filling made from fresh cranberries. Who needs pie when you can have a cake like this?

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CAKE:

3 cups/385 grams cake flour

1 ¾ cups/420 milliliters buttermilk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 ¾ cups/385 grams light brown sugar

¾ cup/170 grams unsalted butter, softened

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon kosher salt

4 large egg wh̾i̾t ̾es

¼ cup/60 milliliters neutral oil like canola

FOR THE BUTTERCREAM:

1 cup/200 grams granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 large egg wh̾i̾t ̾es

Pinch of kosher salt

Sugared cranberries, for garnish

2 cups/450 grams unsalted butter, softened and cut into tablespoons

FOR THE JAM:

½ cup/120 milliliters orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup/200 grams granulated sugar

½ teaspoon orange zest

1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger

12 ounces/340 grams fresh cranberries (3 1/2 cups)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter three 8-inch cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper. Flour the pans and paper.

Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl. Mix buttermilk and vanilla extract in a small bowl.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix sugar, butter, oil and salt. Beat medium-high until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the egg wh̾i̾t ̾es one after another, mixing for about 20 seconds between each egg.

Set mixer to low and alternate adding the dry and wet ingreďïệnts in three additions. Mix until a few spots of flour remain. Remove the bowl from the mixer. Using a rubber spatula, finish folding in the dry ingreďïệnts: Make sure to scrαpє the bottom and sides of the bowl to ensure the batter is evenly mixed.

Divide the batter into the prepared pans (about 2 2/3 cups per pan), smooth the upper parts and touch the pan against the table to release large air bubbles. Bake the cake until golden and swollen, and a tester inserted into the center of the clean cake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Cool the cakes in the pans on a rack for 10 minutes, then use the tip of a knife to loosen the edges and carefully place them parchment-side down onto the rack to cool completely.

Make the buttercream: In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the egg wh̾i̾t ̾es and sugar. Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water and whisk continuously until the sugar has dissolved and mixture is hot to the touch, 5 to 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the cranberry jam: Combine cranberry, sugar, 1/2 cup of water, orange juice and peel, ginger and vanilla in a large saucepan over medium to high heat. Boil the mixture, stirring occasionally and cook until the cranberries hatch and the juice is thick, about 5 minutes. Cool the mixture to room temperature, then use a pickled blender or a food blender to grind the mixture until it is smooth. Set aside.

Return the bowl to the stand mixer and using the whisk accessory, beat the egg wh̾i̾t ̾es mixture until a stiff, glossy top is formed and both mixture and bowl cool to the touch, about 10 minutes.

Switch to the paddle attachment, and reduce the speed to medium. With the mixer running, add the butter a couple of tablespoons at a time and beat the buttercream until smooth and fluffy. During this step, the buttercream will likely break and look curdled: Turn up the speed on the mixer for a few seconds, and it will come back together. Continue until all the butter is incorporated, then add the vanilla and salt.Slowly add 1/2 cup of cooled cranberry jam and mix until well combined. If the buttercream is too soft or runny, refrigerate for about 10 minutes, then beat until smooth.

TO ASSEMBLE:

If necessary, use a serrated knife to trim the cake layers so they are flat and even. Add a small spoonful of buttercream onto a cardboard cake round or serving plate, and place the first layer of cake, cut side up, on top.

Spread about 3/4 cup of buttercream on top of the cake. Spread about 1/4 cup of cranberry jam over the buttercream. Take care not to spread the jam over the edges so that the jam does not spill over the sides. Place second layer of cake on top, repeat with buttercream and jam. Place the final layer on top, cut one side down, and spread the top and sides of the cake with a thin and even layer of butter.

Refrigerate until buttercream is solid, about 30 minutes. Then, evenly spread the remaining buttercream on the cake.

This cake is best served at room temperature, and can be kept, well-wrapped, at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the refrigerator for 5-6 days.

Chocolate Nutella Lava Cookie Recipe

These Nutella lava cookie cups are convenient, they are simple (all ya have to do is make cookie dough, press into the bottom of a muffin tin, top with nutella and more cookie dough, and bake), and they are oozy, melty goodness. What a piece of cake!

Servings: 8 cookies

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 22 minutes

Total Time: 52 minutes

Ingred̾i̾e ̾nts

1 cup unsalted cold butter cut into small cubes

1 teaspoon cornstarch

¾ teaspoon baking soda

2 large eggs

½ cup dark unsweetened cocoa powder use a premium brand for richer flavor; do not use dutch processed

1 cup cake flour

1½ cup all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

3/4 cup Nutella

1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup packed light brown sugar

½ cup graulated wḧïẗe sugar

Instructions

In a mixing bowl of stand mixer beat cream with butter and sugar on high speed until fluffy and the cotton are light (3-4 mins). Add eggs one by one, mix well after each addition. Use a spoon to scrαpє the sides of the bowl between each addition of eggs to make sure all the batter is well mixed.

Add cocoa, baking powder, all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt and set the mixer on low speed to stir until the dough blends. You want the dough to be smooth and even, but don’t mix it too much, you should only take a few rounds and under 30 seconds. Stir in 1 cup of shredded chocolate or chocolate chips (save 1/3 cup).

Put the dough in the refrigerator for about 30-60 minutes to cool. The dough should be just cool (not too hard) so that it is less sticky and doesn’t melt too much in the oven.

Preheat oven to 410°F.

Line two baking sheets with silicone grill mats. Use your hand to lightly scoop 4.5 oz of flour (or you can try to divide the dough evenly into 8 parts, better weigh the weight so that the cakes are evenly cooked) and spread the dough on a plate. The dough will stick but can still be used.

Using the 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, add 1.5 tablespoons of Nutella to the center of your plate. Then, carefully wrap your plate around the Nutella, forming a ball. Make sure that Nutella is completely covered and there are no cracks in your dough. Repeat with the rest. You will place four cookie balls on each baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Gently press about 5-6 chocolate chips onto the surface of each ball.

Place one baking sheet into the center of the oven and place the other ones in the refrigerator. Bake for about 11 minutes or until the surface is dry and the cookies looks almost set but may still be a bit dark in the middle.

Remove from oven and take another baking tray of cookies from refrigerator and bake for about 11 minutes. After you remove the cookies from the oven, you need to let them cool directly on the sheet and all set. Do not remove cookies before they are placed or they will break.

Leave the cookies to cool for at least 20 minutes till they’re all ready to serve!

INGREDIENTS

For Cake

6 eggs

150 grams of sugar

150 grams of flour

A pinch of salt

For Punch Filling

150-200 g jam (plums or apricots)

40-50 g chocolate or cocoa powder

2-3 stamperl rum

possibly juice and peel of an organic orange

possibly biscotti

For Punch Glaze

½ kg of sugar

¼ L water

Juice of ½ organic lemon

Currant jelly for coloring

INSTRUCTIONS

CAKE:

Step 1: To make Cake Punschkrapfen, make a sponge cake with eggs, butter, and flour. To begin, separate the 6 yolks from the egg wнιтes in two bowls.

Step 2: Whisk the yolks with the sugar until they are thick and foamy. Sift the flour and stir it in slowly.

Step 3: In a separate cup, beat the egg wнιтes with a pinch of salt, then combine with the mixture from step 2 to make a perfect sponge cake mixture.

Step 2: To balance the size of the sponge cake, we split the mixture into square parts.

Step 3: Spread the Punch icing filling on the sponge cake foundation, then cover with a second sponge cake and gently press.
Then let the mixture sit overnight before glazing into pink Punschkrapfen the next morning.

Step 2: This entails boiling sugar, dipping a wire ring or fork in it, and blowing it into it. The fondant’s suitability has been determined whether the flight route is in the shape of air bubbles. If, on the other hand, the threads emerge after being removed, the sugar may need to cook longer.

Step 3: Apply the lemon juice to the sugar mixture and set aside to cool.

Step 4: Whisk together the sugar and lemon juice until the yeast turns wнιтe and follows the specifications.

GLAZE THE PUNCH DONUTS

Step 1: Glaze with Mixed Punch We fermented red wнιтe fondant into invisible pink enamel by heating it in a warm bath and coloring it with a little jelly or gr̾a̾p̾e ̾ juice.

Step 2: On top of the cake and filling from stage 2, we spread a layer of jelly.

After the cake has been completed in the previous step, we coat it with a Punch glaze such that the enamel coating on the whole cake is light pink, and it can be adorned with cherry candíєs to add to its appeal. a cake

So, with this basic recipe, we can make a tasty Punschkrapfen cake. And a dreamy pink hue for afternoon tea while preparing to practice without having to go into the kitchen.

Step 4: Using the mixture from step 3, sift the dough slowly through the fine sieve, carefully beating each time to ensure that the mixture blends well and the cake does not get smooth or cake-like. excessively dense (not putting all the dough in the mixture at once will make it difficult to blend the cake ingreďïệnts). In several replenishment intervals, sieve and fold very slowly. When the dough is ready, pour it into an unglazed tube pan with a diameter of 9-10 inches, making sure to rub the pan on the stove to smooth the top.

Step 5: Bake the cake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The cake can swell during baking, so be sure to change the pan halfway through baking to ensure even cooking. Take the cooked bread from the oven and cool fully before turning it upside down on a zinc rack for about 3 hours. If the cake has cooled, loop a thin knife along the sides and softly tap the tray against the counter until it swells.
