Thanksgiving Inspiration: Recipe #2

I know most families usually have pumpkin, apple, or pecan pies for dessert after Thanksgiving dinner.  My family had the privilege of partaking in my mom’s cranberry pudding, complete with sweet butter sauce. (Don’t skip the butter sauce!) I can easily say, we didn’t miss the pies. Another plus to this dessert – other than the fact that it’s delicious, if you double the recipe, you can bake the cake part of it in a 9″ x 13″ cake pan. This makes enough to feed 8 – 10 people comfortably (probably with leftovers).  The cranberry pudding can also be made a day or two ahead of time; you should keep both the sauce and cake in the fridge until the day of the meal (-both separate from one another and covered).  I hope you enjoy!
