Cranberry Cake

My ranch family friends in Montana would make this dessert around this time of year.  We seemed to have come into possession of a couple bags of whole cranberries, so I hit up the Montanans for the recipe.

9x9 pan
3 c cranberries, rinsed and sorted
1 c sugar
2 c flour
1 c milk
3 TBS butter
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
350 degrees 35-40 minutes

Now, at this point you may be saying to yourself "Big deal! There's only one cup of sugar in this.  Not much of a cake, if you ask me," but you would be oh so wrong, for the simple reason you haven't seen this next part of the recipe yet:

1 c sugar
1 TBS flour
1/2 c butter
1/2 c cream
1 TBS apple cider vinegar
Put all in a pan, bring to boil, remove and add 1 tsp vanilla

That is what the recipe says, but then I upped the ante by adding another goodly sized glug of some Blackstrap rum.  Mmmmm, rum.

Perfect for those cold winter days!  Have it for breakfast, even!
