Christmas Cranberry Cake

This cake has been a Christmas tradition for many years at our neighborhood progressive dinner. The dessert course is always at our house, and one year I tried something different for dessert, and there was a revolt! So, last night we had our party and the Cranberry Cake was there once again. It's officially Christmas!! The cake is VERY low fat and a little tart, but the sauce is very HIGH fat and sweet and together the are delicious!
