Cranerry-Orange Bundt Cake Preparation
Have all the ingredients at room temperature.
Position a rack in the lower third of an oven and preheat to 325-degrees. Grease and flour a cathedral cake pan or a 10 cup Bundt pan.
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the cranberries and 4 tablespoons of the orange juice. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the juice is nearly evaporated. Let cool and chop the cranberries finely.
In a bowl, combin the cranberries, orange zest, brown sugar and pecans and stir to mx. Over a sheet of waxed paper, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the flat beater, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds. Add the granulated sugar and beat until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes, stopping the mixer occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then beat in the vanilla.
Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the sour cream and beginning and ending with the flour, beating until just incorporated; stop the mixer occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Spread one-third of the batter into the pepared pan and top wih half the cranberry mixture. Repeat the layering, then spread the remaining batter on top. Bake until the cake springs back when touched and pulls away from the sides of the pan, 50 to 55 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool upright in the pan for 5 minutes. Set the rack over a sheet of waxed aper, invert the pan onto the rack and lift off the pan.
In a saucepan over low heat, meltthe marmalade with the remaining 1 tablespoon orange juice, then stir in the confectioners' suar until smooth. Using a pastry brush, brush the warm cake with the glaze. Let the cake cool completely before serving.
