Cranberry Cake with Warm Vanilla Sauce
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray an 8″ square pan with cooking spray.
Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add cranberries, milk, and melted butter. Mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 35 to 45 minutes or until the top is golden and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
To make the butter cream sauce, melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Add sugar and cream. Bring to boiling and cook for 1 minute. Stir in vanilla.
To serve, pour warm sauce over individual pieces of cake.
This can easily be made in a 9″ x 13″ pan by doubling the cake ingredients. It will just require a bit more time in the oven. I don’t think the butter cream sauce requires doubling, however. I would just do a recipe and a half of the sauce. You can double the recipe and bake it in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
