New England Cranberry Cake
I have tried and tried to figure out why this cake forms the most delicious crust on top and for the life of me, I can't understand it! But without altering the recipe at all or thinking too heavily on the science behind this beautifully crusty cake, I am simply going to offer you this recipe. Be sure you keep it for the Holiday. Although one of the simplest of cake recipes you can make, the flavor is outrageous.
