Lemon Cranberry Pound Cake


Last week Shyama came home from her college and asked if I would make a cake for her to take back to her place.
The place were she stays they celebrate all the kids birthday, and for the person's birthday which comes in the summer holidays they celebrate half year bithday and as her birthday is on end of Jully they did her birhtday on end of  January.
So she wanted to take a cake back there and which she could share with 17 kids.
She didnt want anything with chocolate because one of the kids there don't  like chocolate.
I thought a budnt cake will be the best thing as it is huge can be sliced and shared by a lot.



Normally it has a lemon glazing on top, but I didnt do as she had to take in a tupperware and I thought it might get too sticky etc.....
This is not the first time I make this cake I have made it plentyo f time and it is a reallymoist cake.
The one thing i changed in the recipe was I added less sugar as fo me if we add the full amount of sugar mentioned in the recipe , then it is too sweet.
You can find the Original recipe here
