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.
