You could serve this butter sauce on cardboard and you'd think you were having a gourmet dessert.
Cranberry Cake1 cup sugar
3 tbsp. butter
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
2 cups raw cranberries
Cream together sugar and butter. Sift together dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk. Mix well. Fold in cranberries. Put in greased 9- by 13-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve with butter sauce.
Note: This doesn't have eggs. In other words, it's not a misprint.
Butter Sauce1/2 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
Bring butter, sugar and whipping cream to boil. Let is boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Serve warm over cake. Store leftover sauce in the refrigerator and rewarm.
This dessert is great "as is," just the cake and the butter sauce. For a special treat, serve with a dollop of ice cream (For my Nu Lambda meeting, I used a caramel swirl ice cream.)
