I wanted to bake a cake to bring to Guadalupe House. I had a can of cranberries and wondered if there was such a thing as a cranberry cake and found this! I brought it tonight 2/1/11 and folks loved it. I had enough cranberries and sour cream left to make another 1/2 recipe - I made it in a small rectangular pan - will bring it to work tomorrow.

This was great! I used 8 oz. of the left over cranberries from Recipe #103136 in the cake and then the rest of the cranberries that were left over in a glaze. I used 2 C powdered sugar, the juice of one lemon and the rest of the left over cranberries and heated that together and topped the slices of cake with it. Yummmo

Finally, a tasty solution to leftover Thanksgiving cranberry sauce! What a lovely cake Rita! It was a bit tricky spooning the cranberry sauce over the batter and I ended up using my hands, it was much easier that way. The pecan sugar topping is such a nice touch....this cake is so moist and delicious, thanks so much Rita, you are Chef Exraordinaire!
