The holidays make me SO happy – and holiday baking makes my heart smile! I love cranberry recipes because you can do a ton of fun things with them. For this recipe, I wanted something super fast, super simple, and super delicious. If you need a last minute dessert or want to use up some extra cranberries – this is for you!


You are IGNORING the box directions and ingredients for this.

  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups cranberries (fresh or frozen thawed)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare a 9×9 pan by placing parchment paper down or lightly spraying with oil.

Mix all ingredients, gently stirring in the cranberries.

Spread dough evenly in the pan.

Bake 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and edges are golden brown.

Cut into bars.

Optional: add powdered sugar to the top or serve with ice cream on the side!

Try these fun recipes, too!

My creations aren’t staged, they just are what they are, and that’s probably obvious from the pictures.  I create my recipes from inspiration of scents and flavors around me. I also repurpose my grandma’s old recipes. If you love to bake and your food ends up looking like REAL food, and not like something you’ll see on Instagram, you’re in the right place.
