This is a recipe I put together just a few weeks ago, and my family really likes it. This cake is so moist and refreshing, and it's rather easy to make. It's the perfect dessert on an Indian summer day.

"Cranberry-orange sauce is generally sold as a frozen product. It may be seasonal and only available in the fall in some stores. Indian Trail is one brand to look for.

If that can't be found, you could use whole-berry cranberry sauce and add 1-2 teaspoons of orange zest, or to your liking.

"I was wondering the same thing. That is not something we have in the stores here in the South. Wonder if we could use cranberry sauce and add orange zest or chopped orange."

"What is cranberry orange sauce and where would one find it? I've purchased canned cranberry sauce, but don't know what kind of "carton" to look for regarding cranberry orange sauce. Please post if you can help. Thank you!"
