Champagne Soaked Cranberry Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

It's the start of the holidays and our Bundt Bakers theme
 for this month is Booze! How fun is that???
 I wanted a cake that celebrates the season, so I made a
 Champagne Soaked Cranberry Bundt Cake.
Fun and Festive!
Champagne Soaked Cranberry Bundt Cake

1 1/4 cups Champagne
1 cup Fresh Cranberries
1 cup Champagne
(I used Cooks Brut)
1 box French Vanilla or White Cake Mix
4 ounces Butter, melted
2 eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 cup Champagne
8 ounces Butter, softened
3 cups Confectioners' Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place your cranberries in a bowl and pour your
champagne over them.
Cover with plastic. You can use a plastic bag
if you went to the grocery and forgot plastic wrap.
Let sit for 1 hour.
After an hour, chop cranberries in food processor
or by hand.
Mix all your cake ingredients in your mixing bowl.
Add your cranberries.........
and stir them into your batter.
Pour your batter into your bundt pan and bake for
20 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.
While they are cooling, pour the champagne for the glaze
in to a bowl. Mix or whip to make the champagne go flat.
You can also let it sit out for a few hours.
Make your glaze by mixing all the listed ingredients
If your glaze needs to be thinner, add more champagne,
a little at a time.
Drizzle glaze over bundt cakes and enjoy!

Thank you so much to Lauren Mitchell from From Gate to Plate for hosting today!
