Killer Kranberry

I got called into service by my bride to make a "Holiday Style Cake" for a break at management meeting she was conducting today. I do a mean pineapple upside down cake and recently discovered a similar cake with a Christmas flair ... Cranberry Upside Down Cake. I'll know how it went over when she gets home tonight.

Re: Killer Kranberry

Ask and ye shall receive ... Just did not want to bore folks if all you were interested in was the porn

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9" springform pan and wrap foil around the outside to prevent leaks. If my experience is any indication it will leak anyway so put it on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

Topping:

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups cranberries, rinsed, picked over to remove stems and get rid of shriveled or nasty cranberries, and at room temperature (this worked out to be just less than a 12 oz bag of cranberries).

1. Melt butter in medium saucepan. Add sugar, water, and cinnamon. Cook over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves, about three minutes. Stir in cranberries, make sure they are coated with sugar-butter mixture, then pour into pan and set aside.

Cake:

1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
3/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

2. Beat butter and sugars on medium speed until smooth and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. On low speed add half the flour mixture then mix to combine. Add sour cream and vanilla. Mix to combine. Add remaining flour mixture and mix until smooth. Spread batter evenly over the cranberries in the springform pan.

3. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, edges begin to pull away from the side of the pan, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Cool on rack for 10 minutes. Run knife around edge to loosen cake. Invert onto plate. Remove foil, springform ring, and bottom. Invert again onto serving plate. If any cranberries remain in the pan just put them back on top of the cake. Cut into wedges and serve.
