This is my grandmother's recipe, and the sauce is traditional Cherokee, which has been passed down for generations. It is very versatile and can be used on fry bread, pancakes, waffles and other desserts.
Tired of plain ol' cakes? Give this recipe a shot! Cranberry-lovers will definitely like it because the cake is tart, but the warm butter sauce creates the ideal balance of sweet and sour. Pour the sauce over the cake just before serving.—Katie Kahre, Duluth, Minnesota

The Toffee Sauce should be heated just before serving. —Denise Nyland, Panama City, Florida
