White Cake with chopped cranberry sauce

I lost all my mom's old recipes when she passed to my sister. One cake she used to make that I loved was a rich snow-white cake with small-diced canned cranberry sauce folded into the batter. Have you heard of such a recipe? I would dearly love to find this old favorite.

From the editor:

I don't know if this is exactly the cake you remember, but here's a recipe (from Taste of Home) that sounds very similar:

3 cups All-purpose flour
1½ cup Sugar
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 can Whole berry Cranberry sauce 10 oz
⅓ cup Orange juice
1 tablespoon Orange zest
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Orange extract
1 cup Walnuts, chopped


Icing
1 cup Confectioner's sugar
2 tablespoons Orange juice

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, mayonnaise, cranberry sauce, orange juice and zest, baking soda, salt and extract.

Mix well. Fold in walnuts.

Cut waxed or parchment paper to fit the bottom of a 10 inch tube pan. Spray the pan and paper with nonstick cooking spray.

Pour batter into paper-lined pan. Bake at 350 deg. for 60 to 70 min. or until the cake tests done.

Cool 10 minutes in pan before removing to a wire rack. Combine icing ingredients; drizzle over the warm cake.

This recipe serves 12-16 people.

Good luck.
