Cranberry & White Chocolate chips coffee cake

Cranberry and white chocolate coffee cake is a perfect cake for the month of December.


Cranberry cake is a coffee cake and can be perfect anytime, just as tea cakes are with tea. Cranberries & White chocolate chip cake with a cheese cream frosting and generous drizzle of cranberry and chocolate chips makes me say - Hey! Tis the time to be jolly 🎶..And that’s how I felt when I was baking this cake.


The recipe was shared by a friend and with lot of initial reluctance to try, I gave it a shot. And boy! I discovered I can bake a celebration cake too ☺️



All the cooking & baking I do, is out of sheer passion and love for home made food. So I take time out to explore and tap into my passion. Although many fellow foodies have their eyebrows like a camel hump thinking - "he’s a Guy... then how come he cooks ?😉Must be his wife, girlfriend or someone at home cooks! " - Nope! I do it all. I feel it is better to spend time tapping into one's own potential and eat well at the same time!😁😉


2020 has not been bad to me. I could pick up so much about baking and basic photography that it is a sense of positivity that gets renewed each time I cook, bake, click and share. I share a positive experience along with the food. Cranberry cake is one such experience. It had being precise, being creative and chance to pile on calories all in one cake 😅. It did work well though and it will for you too. Enjoy the bake! 😊


I have split the recipe into two parts. One is baking the bake and the second is the frosting. The topping part is optional. One can leave the frosting out if you don’t prefer it. But as a personal recommendation, try with frosting. It is just ❤️!
