    Nova Scotia Cook's Note:

    Got this recipe from a Nov. 1990 issue of Classic Pillsbury Cookbooks and have been making it ever since. I have made this dessert a Christmas tradition in our household (though have also served it for other special occasions). Everyone who has sampled it gives it a "thumbs up".

      Last week I bought some fresh cranberries and I finally made your recipe!! DEEEEEELICIOUS! I did add 2 teaspoons of orange zest, just because I love it! And I baked it in two loaf pans, one is in the freezer(not sure how long it will be there!) LOL This will become a family favourite too! Thanks NS Cook

      Amazing cake and wonderful flavor combination. Had never thought of putting rum and cranberries together. Thanks so much. We absolutely love anything with cranberries and well the rum sauce is just ther absolute final touch. Highly recommend.

      this cake is beautiful! it's a hit every time i make it; i followed the instructions just as written, except i do tweak the baking time just a little (downward by a couple of minutes) to adjust to my oven temp. the butter rum sauce is to die for; we heat it in the microwave when serving leftover cake. if you like cranberries, this is a great recipe!
