Ingredients:  
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour * see note below for gluten-free alternative
12 oz. fresh cranberries

* Gluten-Free Substitution: 1 1/4 cup brown rice flour + 1/2 cup potato starch + 1/4 cup tapioca starch + 1 teaspoon xanthan gum may be substituted for the amount of all-purpose flour listed in the ingredients above.

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

With a mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5-7 minutes. The mixture should almost double in size. The eggs work as your leavening agent in this recipe, so do not skip this step.

The sugar and egg mixture should form a ribbon when you lift the beaters out of the bowl.

Add the butter and vanilla; mix two more minutes.

Stir in the flour until just combined. Add the cranberries and stir to mix throughout.

Spread in a buttered 913 pan.

Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. (I baked mine for 43 minutes.)

Let cool completely before cutting into small slices. I cut mine into fairly small pieces, about 1″ x 2″ so that they could be easily eaten at a party.

Tart fresh cranberries and sweet buttery cake are perfectly combined in this popular Christmas dessert! Great way to use up fresh cranberries. Only 6 common ingredients.
