Orange and Cranberry Bundt Cake from The Sweet Stash Bakery

Whitney May is the owner and baker at The Sweet Stash, which has been enticing shoppers at the Nashville Farmers' Market for 2 years now. This is a best seller at The Sweet Stash around the holidays. We added some cornmeal to Whitney’s recipe to give it some texture, but it’s great with all flour too. Perfect for breakfast as well as dessert. We like to keep this around over the holidays for drop-in guests, whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner.
