For this recipe I used the square cake pan from my KitchenAid Nonstick 5-piece bakeware set, KitchenAid 7-Speed Hand Mixer and Rodelle vanilla extract. I frequently use Rodelle products including their extracts and cocoa powder and always achieve great results. During the holiday season, I bake all season long and the Rodelle extracts add flavor to bread, cake, cookies and more.

Cranberry Crumb Cake
Save Recipe


    For the cake:
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
  • ¾ cup + 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • For the crumb topping:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch square baking dish or cake pan with butter.
  2. In a small bowl, toss the cranberries with ¼ cup of flour; set aside. Whisk together the remaining flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. In another small bowl, combine the ingredients for the crumb topping (flour through butter); set aside.
  4. Using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter, lemon zest and ¾ cup plus one tablespoon of the sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the batter a little at a time, alternating with the buttermilk. Fold in the cranberries.
  6. Spread batter into greased baking dish and sprinkle batter with crumb topping, crumbling with your hands to make large chunks. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until top is slightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. To make the glaze, whisk the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla extract together. Drizzle over cake. Cut into square slices and serve or store in a sealed container for up to 2 days.

    The Cranberry Crumb Cake looks and sounds so delicious! As soon as our stores here get in the fresh cranberries I will be making this cake. I love Cranberries, I start out buying 4 bags then I buy more. I freeze some bags to use later.
    I would be honored to win this KithenAid prizes! I hate to say this but I need everything that is given. Ten years ago I was given 6 months are less to live, I was in a nursing home. So everything I owned was thrown away from my apartment. Now disabled with a low income it’s hard to replace the stuff I need.
