Holiday Desserts

Fruity flavors rise to the occasion during the season of sharing

This delicious cake makes for a sweet ending to a holiday meal. Cranberry sauce baked into a vanilla-scented batter balances tart and sweet flavors to please palates that like a bit of both.

1 cup cranberry jam (optional)
