Lovely! This is a moist cake filled with tart cranberries and topped off with a rich sauce - I also added in a few white chocolate chips. We all loved it. Thanks for posting!

Absolutely delicious! My family loved the butter sauce so much, I ended up making a second batch to go with the cake.

Fantastic! My mom used to make something similar and I always loves the sour of the cranberries with the sweet of the butter sauce. This recipe brings rave reviews by all who try it!

My mom used to make this cake for Thanksgiving, or sometimes Christmas, and I remember looking forward to dessert just to have this cake. The cake by itself is a little bland, but once you add that butter sauce...Wow! Delicious. I haven't had it in years but I am definitely making it for Chrismas dinner this year. I can't wait.

This was a fantastic cake! I made it for Thanksgiving and baked it in my chrysanthemum bundt pan. It was gorgeous. I made it the day before and put the sauce on at serving time. It was a complete hit and I will be making it over and over.

I'm a cranberry fan so was happy to try this. We had cranberries in the freezer to use so thawed them and whipped this up. Easy to make. Liked the texture...denser like a coffee cake (I don't particularly like the texture you get with cake mixes). Don't overdo the butter sauce as too much is too sweet and rich. Use just enough to enhance the cake, not overwhelm it. Without the sauce it was great for breakfast.

Amazing! Made last christmas everyone loved it. We had a smaller Christmas this year, but I am craving it so I am going to make it just for our family (me at least, and I might share). :) thank you, it's a keeper! *update now it's my 3rd year making, adding a new comment so it will post to Facebook for a friend :)
