  • 1 Tbsp Prairie Farms butter
  • 1/2 Cup dried cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp Rum (optional) plus another Tablespoon of rum for soaking.
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 Cup powdered sugar + 2 Tbsp
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Pinch salt
  • 2 Cups Prairie Farms whole milk


  • Preheat oven 350 F. Butter a 2 Qt Dish (9”x9” square dish works well). Make sure the sides are at least 2” tall as the cake will rise during baking. Place the dried cranberries in a bowl and splash on a tablespoon or two of rum (this is traditional but completely optional).
  • In a medium bowl, cream the eggs and sugar until light colored.

  • Pour batter into dish. Add cranberries gently, distributing them evenly.
  • Bake off about 60 minutes, until top is completely brown.
  • Cool 15 minutes in pan, then serve warm. Or, let cool an hour and serve in squares or in long slices.
