When it comes to getting in the holiday spirit, this festive Cranberry Cake made with our gluten free Chestnut Flour takes the cake! Raw and organic, our Chestnut Flour’s sweet and slightly nutty flavour is perfect in your favourite seasonal treats.

Cranberry Cake with Chestnut Flour


  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups raw cane sugar or maple sugar
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, cubed and softened at room temperature from 1 hour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • 2 cups Chestnut Flour – Sarafino
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 ½ cups fresh or frozen cranberries (12 oz)

Ingredients for the Pecan Topping (Optional):

  • ¼ cup (4 tbsp) unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup raw cane sugar or maple sugar
  • 1 cup raw pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease pan.
  2. Use a stand mixer or hand beaters to beat the eggs and cane/maple sugar until very smooth and increased in volume. If using a stand mixer, beat on medium speed for 4 to 7 minutes with the whisk attachment. If using an electric hand mixer, beat on high speed for 6 to 8 minutes. The egg and sugar mixture will double in volume and turn very pale yellow, leaving ribbons on top of the batter when you lift the beaters.
  3. Beat in the butter, vanilla, and almond extract, if using. Beat for 2 minutes or until the butter is smoothly incorporated.
  4. Use a spatula to fold in the Chestnut Flour, sea salt, and cranberries. The batter will be quite thick. Spread gently into the prepared pan(s).
  5. To prepare the optional pecan topping:
    • Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
    • Add the cane or maple sugar and stir.
    • Add the pecans and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring, until the butter and sugar mixture is shiny and smooth and the nuts are well-coated with the butter and sugar.
    • Spread over the cake batter.
  6. Bake 60 to 80 minutes for the springform. For smaller pans, start checking after 30 minutes, but expect small loaves to take at least 40 minutes. Tent the cake with foil in the last 30 minutes of baking to keep the top from browning (this is especially important for the pecan topping).
  7. Cool for 20 minutes then run a knife around the inside edge of the pan and remove the cranberry cake. Cool for an hour before serving.
  8. Enjoy!
