  • For the Cake:
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 400 grams (2 cups) granulated white sugar
  • 113 grams (½ cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 4 tablespoons (about 60 ml) vegetable oil
  • 240 ml (1 cup) milk
  • 80 ml (⅓ cup) yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 360 grams (3 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 orange (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 225 grams (2¼ cups) fresh cranberries, rinsed and dried
  • For the Orange Glaze:
  • 180 grams (1½ cups) powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 cup sugared cranberries (optional)


For the Cake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Generously spray a bundt pan with non-stick baking spray with flour or use melted shortening and flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar on high speed for 3-4 minutes until the mixture is pale and frothy.
  3. Add in the melted butter, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, milk, and yogurt, mixing until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, corn starch, orange zest, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients on low speed until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in the fresh cranberries using a spatula.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before inverting it onto a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Orange Glaze:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar, freshly squeezed orange juice, and orange zest. Mix until smooth and thick but pourable. Adjust consistency with additional orange juice or powdered sugar as needed.
  2. Once the cake is completely cooled, pour the glaze over the top, letting it drip down the sides. Decorate with sugared cranberries if desired.


  • Substitutions: If fresh cranberries are not available, you can use frozen cranberries (do not thaw them before adding to the batter).
  • Storage: Store the cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Serving Suggestions: Pair this cake with a cup of tea or coffee for a delightful afternoon treat.
