You can't beat this recipe to showcase true fall flavor. The ruby cranberries stay bright and beautiful, and their tartness is irresistible. I've made this cake many times to share. -Marilyn Paradis, Woodburn, Oregon

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs, room temperature

  • 2-1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
