We all get cravings right?
Well, I have had this rich yummy goodness on my mind for forever!
My mother-in-law made this a few years back for some holiday and I have wanted to make it ever since.
In fact I got the recipe about a year ago and couldn't find any fresh cranberries at the store, aghhh!
On Sunday the wait was finally over and I made it for the first time! Actually it was a joint effort, my kids and I made it together. Sorry no in-process pictures, we were having too much fun.
It is super simple and super rich and super bad for you, but hey we are indulging right!? I would say this is great for a party, it is simple to make yet seems very fancy!
Cranberry Cake with Caramel Sauce
3 c. plus 2 T. flour
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. salt
1 1/2 c. milk
4 1/2 T. melted butter
3 c. whole fresh (I used mine frozen) cranberries (12 oz. package)
1 c. melted butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. half and half cream
Cake: Mix dry ingredients. Add mild and butter. Stir in cranberries just until coated. Pour into greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 375* for 45 to 50 minutes.
Sauce: Melt butter, Mix in rest. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and continue cooking for 10 minutes to thicken. Serve warm over pieces of cake and top with whipped cream or Cool Whip.
I didn't have whipping cream or cool whip and it still tasted great, but I can imagine how delicious it would be with it!
