Prosecco Raspberry and Cranberry Cake

November 2, 2014Sew White

Prosecco Raspberry and Cranberry Cake is a super delicious Christmas bake combining a little bubbly and juicy cranberries perfect for winter afternoon tea.

With the Christmas season nearly upon us the time for baking with lots of special ingredients. Christmas flavours for me always include red fruits. Some seasonal and some frozen from summer. I do use Cranberries in this cake but I used dried ones as the fresh ones will be a bit too sour. It’s a worth adding if you want to add a sour taste to the finished cake.

I’ve had the hard yet delicious task of coming up with a recipe using Prosecco for a Sainsbury’s Christmas challenge. When I think of Prosecco I either think of summer holidays and sunshine or I think of Christmas. Full of carols, family, presents and the smell of gingerbread, spices and mulled wine. I think it’s safe to say Prosecco invokes a happy place and brings up lots of happy memories.

To create a recipe I wanted to bring all of food memories together to make it delicious. I think I pulled it off.

I give you my Prosecco, Raspberry and Cranberry Cake.

Serve with a glass of Prosecco and enjoy. I love this cake looked. The mix of fruit and icing looks beautiful to serve. The cake didn’t last long. All my family dived right in after I took the photos. Always a good sign I think.

Two lovely ingredients – Prosecco and cranberries.
