What a fun cake to make! Cranberries, sugar and orange bubbling away to a gooey, thick, tart jam. I had some on an English Muffin for breakfast, it was quite tasty. The jam can be made up to two weeks in advance but it may disappear...That is why I made just half the shortbread recipe and baked it in a cute six inch springform pan.
The smaller circle of dough was easy to work with. I rolled it between two layers of plastic wrap and placed it right in the pan. I spread 1 cup of my yummy jam over the bottom layer and topped it with another circle of shortbread dough. Very easy.
The small spring form pan baked 35 minutes. I let it cool for 20 minutes and removed the sides of the pan. I had a festive looking dessert that served at least 5. It was delicious. Yes, I will make it again.
I can tell I need to plan better, with the time change I was out of light by about 5. Check Jessica's blog 'A Singleton in the Kitchen' for the complete recipe. As always there are many great TWD bakers, see what they did with this yummy recipe.
