Christmas Cranberry Pound Cake

IngredientsFor the Cake:

  • 187 grams cake flour-sifted (it’s about 1 1/2 cups plus 3 Tablespoons cake flour before sifting but you better measure it on kitchen scale because the cake could be dense or dry if you overdo it with the flour )
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup cranberries (fresh or thawed)
  • 140 grams (5 oz.) white chocolate chunk
  • 115 grams (1/2 cup) unsalted butter-softened at room temperature
  • 300 grams sugar ( 1 and 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons browned butter

Frosting:

  • 56 grams (1/4 cup) unsalted butter-softened
  • 112 grams (4 oz.) cream cheese-softened
  • 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar (or more to make it thick enough to spread on top of the cake)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Garnish:

  • handful dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the convection air oven to 325 F (if you don’t have convection air oven raise the temperature to 350 F and you will have to rotate the pan half way through the baking time)
  2. Butter and flour 8.5 x 4.5 x 3 (or 9 x 5 x 3 )inches loaf pan and line it with parchment paper.
  3. Combine cake flour baking powder and salt and sift it three times set aside.
  4. In a small sauce pan over medium heat brown 2.5 Tablespoons butter until it’s nice amber color remove the foam and set aside to cool.
  5. Whisk the egg with vanilla extract and set aside.
  6. Mix the butter on medium speed until it’s creamy slowly add sugar and continue beating until it’s creamy.
  7. Add heavy cream and mascarpone and beat on medium speed.
  8. Turn mixer on low speed and gradually add dry ingredients alternately with eggs.
  9. Add handful flour in chocolate chunks and toss them to cover evenly. Toss cranberries with a handful flour to cover them completely.
  10. Add chocolate chunks in the batter and stir well then gently stir in cranberries
  11. Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan smooth the top and gently tap the pan on working surface to remove the air bubbles.
  12. With a butter knife draw a line down the center of the pound cake and pour browned butter into the line.
  13. Bake until the top of the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean (about 55 to 65 minutes). If you don’t have convection air oven baking time might be about 10 minutes longer. If the top starts browning too much tent the cake with aluminum foil
  14. Cool the cake in the pan for 15 minutes then remove from the pan and cool on the rack.

Glaze:

  1. When the cake is completely cooled prepare the glaze.
  2. With a mixer cream together softened butter and cream cheese until smooth. Slowly add in powdered sugar and beat until smooth mix in vanilla extract. Spread on top of the cake.Place the cake in the fridge until the frosting is set.

Garnish:

  1. When the frosting is set melt 1/2 cup white chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a small sauce pan over low heat until it’s smooth( cool if it’s too thin)
  2. Sprinkle the cake with dried cranberries and drizzle with chocolate. (You can drizzle the chocolate with a spoon or transfer it into small zip-lock bag cut off the corner and pipe the chocolate over the cake).
