I love that this is made with fresh cranberries and just enough sugar to balance the cranberries. It is better when it is a day old. I got this off of the Angelo Caputo Markets website.

yummy. this was soooo good, I could eat all of it. Buttery and moist, it will be great on my Christmas brunch buffet. Next time I will just add the topping before baking, it will make it a lot easier. Thanks for sharing
