  • 1 can pumpkin puree (15 ounces or 425 grams)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • powdered sugar for dusting on top after baking


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9-inch by 13-inch pan with high sides with butter and line the bottom with parchment paper (for easy release). Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, eggs, sugar, and vegetable oil with a whisk until well combined.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and salt, and mix them into the wet ingredients with a rubber spatula just until no streaks of flour remain.
  • Add the cranberries and mix them into the batter gently, just until they're distributed evenly throughout the batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth out the top.
  • Bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean (check the cake at 40 minutes if your pan is any larger than 9x13).
  • Let the cake cool completely in the pan (on a wire rack, if possible). Dust with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.



This cake keeps for up to 3 days at room temperature, covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container. Simply dust with a little more powdered sugar before serving on the second or third days.
