Cranberry Walnut Vanilla Pound Cake drizzled with White Chocolate-perfect for the holidays!
My mom and my kids have a tradition every year. While I’m the baker in the house, cookies, breads, cakes, breakfast, lunch and dinner, my mom does make a few things. One of them is a Cranberry Apple Crumb. That’s not what it’s really called but it’s a good description of it. And every winter holiday (both Thanksgiving and Christmas) my mom and the kids gather in the kitchen and make this together.
I think my kids could probably make it from memory, they’ve been doing for so long. It goes on the table with the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes…yup, we consider this part of our fruits and veggies even though it’s probably more of a dessert.
This year, however, we won’t be having this yummy treat. My mom and the kids decided we needed a change up. I haven’t figured out what will replace it on the table yet but I did seize the opportunity to use some of the cranberries.
It’s a shame fresh cranberries are so hard to find except during the holidays because this cake is amazing. The sweet of the cake, the tart of the cranberries, the crunch of the walnuts all combine to make every bite a taste treat. And of course with white chocolate drizzled all over the top, well, that’s just the icing on the cake!
