Sugar Dessert Recipe

Cranberry Gratin
by Anna Olson

From Sugar, Simple Sweets and Decadent Desserts. Published by Whitecap Books. Recipe reprinted with permission of the publisher.

Makes 1 6-cup dish, serves 6 to 8.


  • 4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • Icing sugar, for dusting

Anna says: Call it a slump or a grunt, this dessert is simple to make and even more gratifying to eat.

Preheat oven to 400F. Pour cranberries into a 6-cup baking dish. In a food processor, blend remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour over cranberries and bake for 30-40 minutes, until top of gratin is an even golden brown colour. Serve gratin warm, dusted with icing sugar.
