This recipe has been a family favorite for decades! It is easy, looks amazing when placed on a platter, and even better, it is delicious. It is not as sweet as many cakes, but the cranberries with the mixture they are in add that little extra touch. The "fluffy" sauce is a delightful topping for your slice of this beautiful cake. Note: I use it every Christmas as it makes a beautiful Christmas cake!
