  1. Put the cranberries in a bowl and cover with warm water for 15 min.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  3. Combine the cranberries, apple, brown sugar, orange zest, orange juice and 1 tsp of the cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  4. In an electric mixing bowl. Beat the eggs on medium-high speed for 2 minutes. With the mixer on medium, add 1 cup of the white sugar, the butter, vanilla and sour cream and beat until just combined. On low speed, slowly add the flour and salt.
  5. Pour the fruit mixture evenly into a 10 in glass pie plate. Pour the batter over the fruit, covering it completely. Combine the remaining 1 tbsp of white sugar and 1/8 tsp of cinnamon and sprinkle it over the batter.
  6. Bake for 55- 60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean and the fruit is bubbling around the edges. Serve warm or at room temperature.
