Cranberry Upside-Down Cake

Cranberry Upside-Down Cake

Ready in 1 hour

I serve this dessert on Christmas Eve, warm with my mom's butter sauce. Of course, it then loses its 'cooking light' status...but it is only once a year, and SO worth it!

"This delicious dessert is wonderful as a stand alone, but I choose to raise it to another level by serving it with my mom's warm butter sauce. Iit is a fun recipe to make...and it is so lovely to serve. Works well as a 'petite' serving...so though the cake is made in an 8 x 8, it can still serve a good sized group.
