Ingredients

  • 3

    eggs

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 3/4

    cup butter, softened

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 2

    cups flour

  • 12

    ounces fresh cranberries

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. With a mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5-7 minutes. The mixture should almost double in size. The eggs work as your leavening agent in this recipe, so do not skip this step. This mixture should form a ribbon when you lift the beaters out of the bowl. Add the butter and vanilla; mix two more minutes. Stir in the flour until just combined. Add the cranberries and stir to mix throughout. Spread in a buttered 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake 40-50 minutes, or until very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool completely before cutting. Small pieces, about 1 x 2 inches, are easy to serve at a party.
