- Diane Hamilton
- 1-1/2 cups (350 ml) butter, room temperature
- 1-7/8 cups (450 ml) light brown sugar, packed
- 4 eggs
- 2-1/4 tsp (10 ml) vanilla
- 1-1/2 tsp (7 ml) ginger
- 1/3 tsp (2 ml) salt
- 2-1/4 cups (525 ml) flour
- 1 cup (225 ml) dried sweetened cranberries, chopped (Craisins)
- 9 oz (252 grm). premium white chocolate, cut into chunks
- 8 oz (224 grm). cream cheese, room temperature
- 4-1/2 cups (1050 ml) powdered sugar
- juice of one lemon, about 6 tsp
- 3/4 tsp (4 ml) vanilla
- 1/3 cup (90 ml) dried sweetened cranberries, chopped
- Drizzled icing:
- 3/4 cup (175 ml) powdered sugar
- 1-1/2 tbsp (20 ml) half and half cream
- 3 tsp (15 ml) butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) white chocolate chips, melted
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 C.).
- Beat softened butter and brown sugar until smooth.
- Add eggs and spices and beat well.
- Gradually mix in flour until smooth.
- Stir in cranberries and chocolate chunks by hand.
- Pour into non-stick or well-greased 12x17 inch jelly-roll pan.
- Spread evenly & bake for 35-40 minutes, until light brown on edges.
- Cool completely before frosting.
- For frosting, beat softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla until very smooth.
- After cake has completely cooled, spread on top of cake and sprinkle 1/3 cup (90 ml) dried chopped cranberries over the frosting.
- Whisk together icing ingredients & drizzle over cranberries, using a pastry bag with a very small tip or zip-lock bag with a very small snipped opening. Use a sweeping motion for the drizzle.
- Slice into approximately 2 by 4 inch rectangles, then slice each rectangle in half cross-wise to make triange shapes. Allow the cake to sit for several hours before serving.
- Because the frosting & icing set up quickly, it is easier to cut the slices just after you frost the cake, then let it set up.
