Cranberry Butter Cake

I always love butter cake and with added cranberries, it makes it so perfect! Folding meringue is also a challenge to me and I think I did well for this cake, nicely risen and a smooth brown top. Feeling motivated to bake more of this cake.

Recipe with modification


250g Salted Butter (room temperature)
4 egg yolks
120g caster sugar
180g self-raising flour (sifted)
Dried cranberries
60g fresh milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 egg whites
50g caster sugar


1. In the bowl of a mixer, beat together butter and sugar until the mixture turns pale and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, and continue beating until incorporated. Add the vanilla extract and mix.
2. Fold in the dry ingredients and milk in the sequence flour-milk-flour. Add dried cranberries and mix until just incorporated. Set this aside.
3. In a clean mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites until foamy. Gradually add the sugar, whisking all the while until stiff peaks form.
4. Transfer 1/3 of the meringue into the yolk mixture and mix.Gently fold in the remaining meringue in 2 batches, until no white streaks remain.
5. Pour the batter into a lined and lightly greased 8-inch round pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle some dried cranberries on top.
6. Bake at 170°C for 45 minutes.When the cake is done (insert a skewer it the cake and if it emerges cleanly it is done), let the cake rest for 5 minutes in the pan before carefully transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely.
