Perfect for a Christmas centrepiece, this cake is baked with a layer of glazed cranberries as the base and then inverted before serving. It's delicious and very pretty!


Serves: 12 

  • 125g butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 340g fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 90g butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup sour cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Generously grease a 23cm springform cake tin. Wrap aluminium foil around the outside of the bottom to prevent leaking.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of white sugar, water and cinnamon until sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil and then add the cranberries. Stir to coat with the sauce, then pour into the prepared tin.
  3. Sift together the flour, bicarb soda and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, beat the butter with remaining 1/2 cup white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla and sour cream. Mix in the dry ingredients. Pour the batter over the cranberries in the tin.
  4. Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then run a knife around the outer edge. Invert onto a serving plate and remove the springform tin.
