Oven Baked Whole Cranberry-Caramel Sauce

Total Time

This is a recipe that is the same as one my Mom makes, she has been making it for years and it has become a staple on our Holiday Table. It's a variation on the traditional sauce which produces whole cooked berries with a touch of caramel. Hope you enjoy!


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread cranberries in a 9 inch square baking pan, sprinkle with sugar.
  3. Cover and bake, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes or until tender.

I made two version of this recipe for Thanksgiving. One as the recipe is written. The other I made with the Splenda brown sugar blend and added some orange zest. Both were enjoyed by my guests. Note: Place the baking dish on top of a cookie sheet. Even though my baking dish was well covered, the cranberries oozed out from under the cover and ran all over my oven.

Yummy! I topped the brown sugar with a tablespoon of butter. Great for wraps, turkey, chicken or top a toasted pound cake with ice cream then this sauce.
