Yeah, I know. Another cranberry recipe? Really? Yup, I just can’t help myself. I love those little buggers. I’ll be honest–I’ve been hoarding cranberry recipes for the past year. Now that I can find them at the grocery store, I’ve gone a little out of control. I promise (maybe) that is my last cranberry recipe. Well, for this week at least.
Pumpkin pie is certainly the traditional Thanksgiving dessert, but it’s not my personal favorite. I don’t dislike it, but I don’t love it either. So I went in search of something slightly nontraditional, yet still perfect to serve at Thanksgiving or frankly, anytime of the year and found it at A Farmgirl’s Dabbles.
By itself, the cake is good, but it morphs into something spectacular after you drench it in a simple butter sauce. Interestingly, the first piece I ate was good but the next day – even better. So feel free to make this the day before serving, which is always nice. And please, please, don’t skimp on the butter sauce. Honestly, it ties it all together and knocks it out of the ball park.
