I had a light bulb moment with this dessert – instead of just making it ahead of Thanksgiving, I baked it for my quilt guild meeting. That way, I could share and not feel compelled to eat it all. It worked! Everyone enjoyed the cake, and there was just a little bit left over.
This is a perfect November dessert. It is lightly spicy, not like full-blown gingerbread, and the tartness of the cranberries balances the sweetness of the cake. The cream cheese frosting adds a bit of tanginess. Another delicious cranberry treat from Dorie!
