We did it, Thanksgiving 2015 is officially in the record books!
Now that you’ve caught your breath how about we do a little holiday baking? Let’s kick things off with a moist, yummy and super easy White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Snack Cake.
This honey sweetened whole wheat snack cake gets most of it’s moisture from non-fat plain yogurt and a little melted coconut oil.
A large spoonful of finely grated orange zest combined with fresh squeezed orange juice gives the cake a delightfully bright citrus flavor. And what flavor goes better with orange than cranberry? Each generous slice of cake is studded with beautiful tart fresh cranberries.
Trying to be slightly restrained we kept the white chocolate confined to just the glaze but you could easily stir a handful of chips into the batter.
Speaking of the batter, don’t be concerned by how dense it is. By the time you’re mixing in the cranberries it should be very thick almost like a cookie dough.
Using honey gives the cake a mild sweetness, golden brown color and a light crispy top. Like muffins, you’ll want to transfer this cake from the pan to a baking rack to cool completely. This helps to prevent a soggy bottom.
With lots of honey, cranberries and orange the cake is perfectly tasty on it’s own but we can do better. And by better I mean glaze! Melt together a handful of white chocolate baking chips, tablespoon of coconut butter and a few dashes of half & half for a rich and creamy glaze.
Drizzle the glaze generously over your cake, grab a cup of coffee and buckle up for a visit to decadent cake heaven as you enjoy a slice of this White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Snack Cake.
