Cranberry Orange Buttermilk Breakfast Cake

Good morning–  Just in case you have a bag of cranberries lingering in your freezer after the holidays here is jus one more cranberry recipe (the last, I promise!!).  I could eat this all year round with mugs of hot tea.

And thinking most of you don’t have those cranberries on hand, blueberries would work just as well!  Perfect coming out of the oven on a lazy Saturday morning…

CRANBERRY ORANGE BUTTERMILK BREAKFAST CAKE
1 orange
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 cups fresh cranberries
1/2 cup buttermilk*

Grate all the peel off of the orange.  Set aside.

Mix together the oil, 1 cup sugar, egg and vanilla.  Then stir in the flour baking powder and salt.  Fold in the cranberries and orange peel.  And finally stir in the 1/2 cup buttermilk.

Spoon the stiff batter into a 9″ square** baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Pop it into a 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.  Delicious served warm with morning mugs of tea!

*In place of buttermilk, you can use 1 tab. of cider vinegar & then fill the measuring cup to 1/2 cup.  Let it sit a couple minutes to thicken like buttermilk.
**or –I used a 10″ tart dish

I hope all is well there. Are you near the terrible mud slides? Prayers for all people affected and the firemen and rescue workers! Blessings, dear friend!😃💗💗💗

    • Hi Mary– no, the mudslides are about 3 hours north of us. And our kids are in a burn area, but didn’t get enough rain for mudslides. thanks for asking! We were thankful for the little rain we got here! Happy weekend! What are you up to??

      • I hope all the kids are ok being in the fire zone. I am trying to get over a nasty cold so I rested some but I helped my son pack for college and with his laundry. Tom takes him back tomorrow and I go wedding dress shopping with my daughter in law. Hugs to you, friend.😃💗

  3. I don’t have any cranberries but I do like the idea of replacing them with blueberries which always seem to be in the store. It sounds like a nice way to start the morning.
