So what makes this a snack cake? The fact that it is mildly sweetened and there is no frosting. I guess the fruit also helps. It really is perfect for snacking and can be enjoyed straight from the fridge or warmed up. It’s healthy enough to be enjoyed for breakfast and even easy enough to make in the morning.
I cut this cake into 9 pieces, but they are kind of small and I actually think it would be better to serve in 6 pieces. You could always double the recipe in a 13×9 if you have a larger group to serve.
Here’s a little piece of real life. I took pictures at 9am and my daughter wanted some cake. She was still in her jammies, but of course I let her have some.
I made this twice- the first time with no orange zest and juice and the second time including them and wow, it really makes a difference. The orange flavor isn’t strong, but it compliments the cranberries perfectly and adds a little sweetness. It really takes this cake from okay to super delicious!
This would be so perfect for a holiday breakfast or brunch. An easy, delicious, healthy cake that everyone will love!
