READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This is a really delicious cake recipe that I clipped a few years ago from Homemakers Magazine. The sweet white chocolate is a nice contrast to the tart cranberries and orange.

Excellent pound cake and wonderful any time of the year. Have had it in my files for a long time and always turns out perfectly. If you really like orange flavor do add more orange rind. Highly recommend this recipe and thanks for submitting.
