Ellie's Cranberry Cake with Lemon Butter Sauce

This is a very old recipe that belonged to my grandmother. Her name was also Mary Louise, but she went by the name Louise.

I am not sure where this recipe was, but about five years ago was the first time I tasted it. My mother made this when I went home to visit with my friend who was visiting from England. Needless to say my friend was crazy about this cake and so was I.

This cake has to be served with the lemon butter sauce or you can not fully enjoy it. It is easy to make and perfect to share with friends and a cup of coffee or tea.
