My husband's favorite Christmas dessert!

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
2 cups fresh cranberries

1/2 cup butter (one stick)
1 1/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt, to taste


1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking pan.
2. To make the cake, sift together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs. Add milk alternately with the dry ingredients, starting and ending with dry ingredients. Mix well. Stir in cranberries. Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
3. To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium low heat and cook 10 minutes or until sugar is melted, stirring frequently. Allow cake to cool slightly, and cut into individual servings. Spoon warm butter sauce on top just before serving. Serves 12.
