Recipe Ingredients for Cranberry-Orange Cornmeal Cake

3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting the pan
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 cup orange zest (from 2 lare oranger)
3/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
1 1/4 cups splenda granulated
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 large egg yolks
2 large eggs

Recipe Directions for Cranberry-Orange Cornmeal Cake

  1. Put an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and orange zest. Measure 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture into a small bowl. Add the chopped cranberries and toss until coated. Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the egg yolks and whole eggs, 1 at a time. Gradually add the flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Using a spatula, gently fold in the cranberries.

  3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the surface with a spatula. Bake until the cake is golden brown, and a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
