Glazed Lemon Cranberry Cake

Are you familiar with Annies Eats?  This amazing website has recipes that are easy to make, taste great and are always a little different than you'd expect.

I wasn't even looking for this kind of recipe, but I follow her on instagram and when she posted a picture that looked like this:

I knew I was going to have to try it.  I have that crazy amount of cranberries, remember, so making this for Thanksgiving was a no brainer.

Everything went as expected, even my bundt pan.  Usually, cakes gets stuck in it and I make a huge mess.  Because the fruit was on the bottom of the pan, I think that helped the whole thing come out.

When it's finished, you make a lemon glaze with confectioner's sugar and lemon juice and drizzled it over.

This gorgeous china is a family heirloom and cannot be duplicated, so don't even ask where it came from.

The cake is very tasty and pretty dense.  My only complaint is that I don't think I used enough lemon, so next time, I would use more.

Otherwise, it came out exactly as I thought it should.  I never refrigerated it and it held up really well.  The cranberries didn't leak down into the cake to make it soggy and the cake remained not stale after several days of leftovers.

Another amazing hit from Annies Eats that will surely become a holiday go-to again and again!
