Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is a very good cake with no added butter or oil. A good way to use up those holiday cranberries without the holiday guilt.

This was just the dessert we were looking for! DH loved it, it reminded him of shortcake. I did add 1 t. vanilla extract just because I thought it needed it with the simple list of ingredients. I'm going to try this recipe with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries on top. Thanks!
