Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake with White Chocolate Glaze

Last Updated on February 16, 2020 by Diane Hoffmaster

One of the things I love most about fall is the reappearance of cranberries in the grocery store.  When I find those precious bags of fresh cranberries I buy them every week and throw them in the freezer for year round cooking.  Of course, I usually run out of them by spring and have to wait impatiently for them to show back up again!  If you are a cranberry fan yourself, I highly recommend you start stocking up!  Just throw a spare bag or two in the freezer for delicious quick breads and baked goods even in the middle of summer!

Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake Recipe 2

I wanted to do something creative with my latest cranberry haul so rather than making yet another quick bread or muffin I started looking for something a little more unique.  I came across a cranberry bundt cake recipe that sounded intriguing but I knew that with the tartness of the cranberries I would need a sweet icing to go with it.  Since I had picked up some white chocolate chips today I decided to melt a few and turn them into a simple glaze to pour over the top.

I was very impressed with my cranberry and white chocolate creation and the kids are in the kitchen right now devouring it!
