CRANBERRY CAKE WITH BUTTER SAUCE

This dessert is a real sleeper. To read it, it sounds “ho hum” but the first bite will pop your eyes wide open. This recipe keepsMarie and I crawling around on the tundra, making sure we have ourwinter supply of cranberries in the freezer.

Cranberry Cake

  • 3 cups flour (750mL)
  • 4 tbsp baking powder (20 mL)
  • 1/2 tbsp salt (2 mL)
  • 3 tbsp butter or margarine (45 mL)
  • 1/2 cups sugar (375 mL)
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla (7 mL)
  • 1/2 cups milk (375 mL)
  • 3 cups cranberries (750 mL)

Butter Sauce

  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine (175 mL)
  • 1/2 cups sugar (375 mL)
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk or cream (175 mL)

TO PREPARE THE CAKE

  1. Mix the flour, bakingpowder and salt in a bowl and set aside.

  2. Creamtogether the butter,sugar and vanilla.It does not get all creamy and fluffy as it does in a butter cake,as the ratio of butterto sugar is not high enough. That is the way it is supposedto be.

  3. Addthe flour mixtureto the creamed mixture alternatively with the milk, beating after each addition, just until it is mixed.

  4. Stirin the cranberries. (If you are using large commercial cranberries, chop them up a bit. Try a quick whir in the food processor.)

  5. 1.   Spread the batter in a greased9 x 13” (23 x 33 cm) pan. Bake in a 400°F (200°C)oven for 30–40 minutes, until golden brown and the top springs back when lightly touched.

TO PREPARE THE BUTTER SAUCE

  1. Combine the sauce ingredients in a saucepan andbring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Simmerfor two minutesand remove from heat. A wire whiskis very usefulto keep the sauce smooth.

Serve the sauce warm over the cake – and remember – the secret is in the sauce. Be prepared for raves! (ummm! ahhh! ohhh!)

If you want to make this in a 9” (23 cm) square pan, just cut back on the ingredients by 1/3.
