The first time I served this cake was at Thanksgiving dinner several years ago. Along with pumpkin pies, it's become our traditional annual holiday dessert. The parents of three sons, my husband and I have two granddaughters. -Esther McCoy, Dillonvale, Ohio

"The cake was okay. I baked it in a 9 in. square pan. It was done in 35 mins. The dried cranberries sank to the bottom. Also, I think it needed more cranberries. I will not make again."
