I sugared some cranberries to go alongside the cake. I didn't use a recipe, I just boiled a simple syrup, tossed some cranberries in the pot then drained and rolled in coarse sugar. They didn't come out as crunchy as I would have liked but they were still fun.
This cake is dense, full of thick molasses and has whole, tart cranberries scattered through out it. I baked it in a kugelhopf pan, but a traditional bundt will work just as fine. When I was buying the pan, the guy ringing me up scanned it and then looked at it with the most confused look. He said, 'What in the world is this?' 'A kugelhopf pan, of course!' I replied, as if it was common knowledge to a teenage checker at Target. Looking at me still confused I said, 'Its like a bundt pan.' Still no response. Finally I said 'You make cakes in it.' 'Ooooooh, umm ok' was his only reply.
