Cranberry Cake with Warm Vanilla Butter Sauce

My grandmother made this every Thanksgiving while growing up.She also made hundreds of servings for the Masonic Lodge Christmas Party.And then again, just for me, when we sat together decorating her Christmas tree.Such a sweet lady.

I love using cranberries.I love the bright red color they bring. They add the perfect tartness to this cake.Then you warm up the vanilla butter sauce and drizzle it over…;…;…;Mmmmmaccent pillow case baby burlap decorative, it balances the tart with a rich, warm sweet taste.

It’;s delicious and looks so festive.

I’;m sure many of you have had this or make it yourself. But if you haven’;t…;…;.do not miss out!You’;ll love it.

Sauce:1 cup butter2 cups sugar1 cup cream or half-and-half2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Candied Cranberries:1 cup water 1 cup sugar remaining cranberries 1-2 cups

Bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

This cake is served room temperature. The sauce will bring the warm element.

After the sauce cools a bit, I put it in a squeeze bottle for drizzling. You can find them with candy making supplies. (I bought mine at Micheal’;s.)

Candied Cranberries

Before I serve the dessert, I candied up some cranberries for garnish. I just used the left over cranberries from baking the cake and used the same cooking method as I did from THIS post.

Add the sugar and water to a pan and simmer the cranberries for 10 minutes. Mine didn’;t keep their round shape but still made a great garnish.

Then everyone can take a slice.? Or maybe 2…;..I know they will want more!

I hope this recipe will add some goodness to your table.

Oh no!? I am overly excited about the food already! Ha ha!

Happy Decorating!

Budget: $0.When sourcing parts for my last backpack I realized how much the parts could cost: webbing, d rings and/or parachute clamps really add up.I also wanted to add a hood to an existing backpack, but didn't have any spare backpacks. However, I did have some donor hoodies available and that inspired this project.There are already several hoodie-to-backpack projects out there but nothing like what I wanted, so I started planning.

The living room is possibly the most used room of any house. It is where we watch TV, entertain friends, chat over coffee, and throw ourselves about while playing certain computer games. We use it as a play room, a study -with our laptops on knees, a dining room – with plates on knees a reading area and a napping area. It’s one of the few rooms where the entire family will all be in at one time, and possibly plus a few relatives too. It is a true multi-purpose space, and therefore need to be designed and decorated to reflect this.

Just in time for summer, Bunny Williams designed a variety of floral frogs to make flower arranging easier than ever. According to Bunny, anyone can create a beautiful arrangement if you’ve got the right tools. We’re not saying we didn’t take her word for it, but we did put her floral frogs to the test. We askedgarden and entertaining expert, James Farmer, to help us create three unique looks using each one of Bunny’s floral frogs — and we think you’ll love the results every bit as we do.
