Even for a lazy baker like me this is easy and has a wonderful blend of flavors, which gets raves every time I make it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter and sugar together. Add maple extract and unbeaten eggs and mix.
  2. Add sifted dry ingredients, alternating with sour cream until blended.
  3. Spray cooking spray into bundt pan.
  4. Sprinkle bottom of the pan with 1/4 cup of the nuts, adding 1/2 of the batter on top of the nuts.

  6. Add cranberry sauce to batter and swirl it through batter with a table knife.
  7. Add remaining nuts and the rest of the batter.

Instead of a cake I made one large loaf and one small. It tastes good, but the cranberry sauce changes to a blue-gray color, kind of a turn off. Recipe also calls for 4 cups flour. I only used two; I think the 4 cups is a typo. Thanks for the recipe. Toni
