  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat 1 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons melted butter with a whisk until well mixed. Add eggs and beat until smooth. Stir flour mixture and milk into egg mixture until batter is well blended. Fold cranberries into batter until just mixed and pour into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  4. For sauce, heat 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, heavy cream, and vanilla extract in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook and stir cream sauce until sugar is dissolved, about 10 minutes. Pour hot sauce over hot cake. Allow cake to cool in the baking dish for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Enjoyed this Recipe for Cranberry cake better then any other that i have tried. I served it with a Orange liquer sauce. Very good.

This cake is fabulous and very pretty! Everyone loved it. I made just minor changes. I used 2 cups and 4 tablespoons of cake flour instead of the all purpose and I only used half of the cream gl...

I made this cake as directed except I didn't have heavy cream for sauce so I used sweet cream (cold stone) creamer. I used a bundt cake pan and poked holes in cake before pouring sauce. I also a...

Love it, followed the recipe as is. The sweetness and the tartiness together is simply amazing and the cake is so light. Kids and the husband love it. Will definitely make it again

I made no changes. This cake is excellent. I especially like the tangy taste of the berries against the sweet sauce.

As I poured it in the dish, this looked like one of those cakeoverthefruit type cobblers. It isn't, but it's not exactly typical cake either. 'Didn't attempt (wouldn't if I were you) to take it...

I didn't make any changes except for the fact that I didn't have brown sugar and vanilla extract. Substituted brown sugar with white sugar and reduced the total amount by 25%. I took it for my d...
