"I have been using Taste of Home recipes for many years. This was my first recipe disappointment. I think one can of cranberry sauce is too much, either that or the sauce needs to be drained. The cake was cooked but the inside remained soggy. I used the national brand of whole sauce so that should not have been the problem."

"This was a great hit at my work, I've had to make it twice more since. I changed the water to milk in the icing portion of the recipe and placed the pecans in the pan first instead of last."
