Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake, Gluten-Free, Twiins Style & Doubly Delicious
Did you ever have a cranberry orange Duncan Donuts muffin? If you did then you know they are absolutely amazing! We always loved to get these muffins with a cup of coffee while out shopping together. It became the highlight of our shopping excursions. We are proud to say we achieved that same moist & flavorful combination in our Twiins Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake. No need to wait for a special occasion. Make this bundt cake anytime and it will disappear in the blink of an eye (especially if Jack is nearby)! This is another example of how baking gluten-free is just as delicious in taste and texture as traditional flour is. ❤️❤️
- 2¾ cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour
- 2 Tablespoons Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour (for cranberry coating to prevent cranberries from sinking to the bottom)

- 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 cup sour cream (we use Daisy)
