Cranberry Pudding Cake

by Laura

I am a cranberry fan.  So when I saw this recipe for cranberry pudding cake shared by Kim Naegle on a local TV show called Good Things Utah, I had to try it.  I loved the fact that it used fresh whole cranberries, no chopping here.  I also love the idea of cranberries in an almond flavored cake, then to top it all of with a yummy buttery cream sauce.  Now you see why I had to try it. 

I must admit, I was expecting the cake to be really moist because of the sour cream in the recipe.

I was expecting a texture similar to that of a bundt cake made with sour cream in it.   The cake had more of a muffin type of texture.  It is very dense and a little drier than I had originally expected.  However, I loved the light flavor of the sweet almond cake paired along with the tart cranberries.  The two flavors work so well together.  Some of the cranberries still had a nice little pop when you eat them.

I must say, you forget about the cake being a tad dry when you top it off with the delicious sauce.  Don’t make this cake without it.  It really is the thing that brings the whole recipe together.  I would maybe even do a recipe and a half of the sauce next time.  I seriously could just eat the sauce all by itself.  So, I must admit I had no problem cleaning off the spoon used to dish up the sauce.  I got every drop of that sauce off the spoon with my tongue.  YUM!

Made it yesterday for Christmas today and it was a WINNER!! I made two 9×9 cakes because I don’t have a Bundt pan. I made the sauce yesterday and put it in a Mason jar. It remained creamy and was easy to spoon over a slice of cake before warming for about 10 seconds.
THE RECIPE IS A KEEPER; MY FAMILY LOVED; I SHARED SOME WITH MY NEIGHBOR AND SHE LOVED IT TOO.

I made this cake yesterday for a family gathering. With the dryness you mentioned, I made a couple of changes: I added an extra egg, and upped the oil to 1/3 c. It baked for 65 minutes. While the cake was warm, I poured about 1/3 of the hot butter sauce over it. The result was fabulous! It was moist and incredibly delicious. It was devoured…and I wish I had more cranberries to make a second cake! 🙂

I would add that the texture of the cake was just like a very moist pound cake. Yum!

You can make the sauce a head of time. Just warm it a little in the microwave before serving.

Laura – does the sauce need to be warm to be served, or can it be made before hand?
