This recipe can be cut in half by halving all ingredients and using a half of each can of nectar for a single recipe. This is a very Christmasy cake that is very enjoyable with a hot cup of coffee on a winter morning. Enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the cake, empty cake mixes into a large bowl. Add eggs, oil, apricot and strawberry nectars, sugar and vanilla pudding. Mix until smooth. Place the dried cranberries into a large ziplock bag with a 1/2 cup of flour. Shake vigorously until they are coated. Fold the cranberries into the batter.
2
Pour into two 13 x 9" pans. Bake at 350 degrees until toothpick inserted comes out clean - approximately 25 to 35 min.
3
While cakes are baking, in a medium saucepan, heat the butter, sugar, extracts, and half and half on medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside.
4
Pour hot butter sauce over still warm cake and allow it to set until it's cooled or you can cut and serve while it's still warm.
