This Dark Chocolate Cranberry Bundt Cake is the perfect combination of rich chocolate and tart juicy cranberries in a tender, buttery cake. Perfect for the season of entertaining!
There are a lot of things I love about this time of year. I look forward to the cooler weather, fires in the wood stove, and pulling out all of our hats and scarves. But the thing I look forward to most this time of year is everything Cranberry. No joke. I have a serious crush on all things cranberry!
As soon as the fresh cranberries start showing up at the store in the fall, I stock up like a crazy lady. I fill the freezer with bags of them to last me for months! It may seem excessive, but one way or another, every last cranberry gets eaten. We take cranberry season very seriously at our house!
Cranberries can be tart, tricky little berries. But once you know how to tame this bright tangy fruit, they add so much color and flavor to your recipes. I’m totally hooked on them! Last year, this Cranberry Orange Spice Cake stole the show at our house.
I made it for every holiday gathering we attended and it was a hit every time. And this Cranberry Pear Tart has been a regular part of our Thanksgiving and Christmas menus for years now. Fall, winter, and all the holidays in between taste like Cranberries at my house.
This year, I set out to find another hit cranberry recipe. When I sliced into this Dark Chocolate Cranberry Bundt Cake, studded with fresh cranberries and dripping with dark chocolate ganache, I knew I had a winner.
In fact, this Cranberry Bundt Cake has exceeded all my expectations. I’d venture to say it might even be my favorite cranberry recipe yet.
As it turns out, fresh cranberries and chocolate are the perfect combination of flavors. The fudgy, tender, dark chocolate cake almost melts in your mouth.
The cranberries are a sour, fruity pop that is the most delicious surprise in the middle of all that rich, dark chocolate. It’s unexpected, but so good.
You can eat this Cranberry Bundt Cake without all the toppings and it doesn’t disappoint. However, the dark chocolate ganache and cranberry orange sauce really make it something special.
The combinations of sweet and sour, rich and tangy, are just so satisfying. Really, this is one flavor combination you’ve got try!
