Christmas Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake (Gluten Free)

If you’re looking for a delicious and healthier holiday treat to share with your loved ones, I’ve got you covered! I created this Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake the other snowy day, and I’m super excited to bring you the recipe. 

It was a lot of fun styling and capturing this little set up while watching the snow fall outside, and listening to christmas music playing in the background. 

 Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake (Gluten Free)

This cake is perfectly paired with freshly squeezed orange juice, orange peel, and cranberries. Fresh and organic cranberries soften, and burst as the cake bakes. The cake is made gluten free, and sweetened with coconut sugar. This balances the tartness of the cranberries. I love using coconut sugar, as it adds a depth of flavor to my baking goods, and it’s better for you, thanks to it’s lower glycemic index. You need to make this cranberry orange bundt cake yourself, and find out how delicious it is! Also, you will see that this recipe takes very little effort to make. The whole cake is topped with a  5-minute cranberry sauce that adds extra flavor and sweetness.

Prepare this perfect Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake for an upcoming holiday, and I bet no one will be able to guess it’s healthy ingredients. Make sure you save a piece for yourself so you can enjoy it with a cup of coffee on a cool winter afternoon. I hope you have an amazing time and find a moment to make and enjoy this delicious bundt cake.
