A moist and delicious treat with a great mix of flavors. Perfect for those unused cranberries from Thanksgiving. You can use a variety of pans depending on what you have. Baking times will vary based on the pan. Two loaf pans take about an hour.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ¾ cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups chopped apples
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch fluted-tube pan (such as Bundt®).
  2. 2 Whisk eggs, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth.
  3. 3 Sift flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a separate bowl; stir into egg mixture. This is a very thick mixture so use a solid spoon to mix together. Fold in apples, cranberries, and pecans until evenly incorporated. Pour batter in the prepared pan.
  4. 4 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes.

  1. It's a good thing I read the reviews before making this. I usually make recipes as directed but I had a feeling it wouldn't turn out as written. The dough was VERY stiff. So I added an extra egg and 1/2 t. of baking soda. Made all the difference.
  2. The first time I try a recipe I don't mess with it. After it's been served if there's something lacking or that might enhance it in my perception and/or to those that have eaten it then I'll make notes for the next time it's made. So out the chute so to speak this cake was - Read more ...
  3. Made this exactly as written and it was excellent. The cranberries flavor complements the sweet and spicy cake. Not dry at all. Had a little trouble getting it out of the Bundt pan but with a little patience it came out fine. Just sprinkled a little powdered sugar over the top to serve. Great recipe - Read more ...
  4. My family has been making this cake for over 25 years and it's a favorite everywhere we take it! The only missing step is BUTTERING AND FLOURING your bundt pan before spooning the batter in. You will NEVER have a problem getting the cake to fall right out of the pan if you do this! - Read more ...
  5. Other reviewers have commented about the cake breaking when releasing it from the Bundt pan. I have never had an issue with this since I discovered Magic Cake Pan Release. 1/2 cup shortening 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup flour mixed together. Use a pastry brush to paint the pan. It lasts in the pantry - Read more ...

  7. I made this recipe exactly as written and brought it to a work function. It is spectacular and delicious. I had so many great compliments. The only thing I would say is that it looks a little like fruitcake. So many people have only tried that weird store-bought fruitcake with jellied candies instead of real - Read more ...
  8. I love this cake. I followed the directions just the way it was written and it was a big hit.Very moist and yummy!!
  9. This was very moist not too heavy just lightly spiced and very fruity. I followed the recipe as written except I cut the brown sugar to 1 1/2c and it was just sweet enough for my tastes cause I like tartness. I used a handheld mixer to mix it all up. The batter might not - Read more ...
  10. I actually made a lot of modifications to this recipe because I was afraid it wouldn't be moist enough sweet enough or spicy enough. So here's what I did: I used 3 eggs 2 cups of brown sugar 1/4 cup of regular sugar 3/4 cup vegetable oil 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda and I added the - Read more ...
