One of my favorite fall/winter desserts! The butter sauce makes the cake. I usually double the sauce. Even my father-in-law (who hates tart cranberries) likes this cake.

Delish right out of the oven. Don't make this around children - or else you might not have butter sauce for the cake. This is a keeper

This is so good! The only thing I changed was I added eggs as I did not see any listed and feared it would crumble if no eggs were present. I also used 1% milk as I had no half/half. It still turned out light and wonderful. I agree with the previous reviewer that alot of sauce is nice. I think I will add 3 cups of cranberries next time as I love the tart with the sweet sauce. Thanks for a great recipe!
