I made this cake for Thanksgiving and received a few compliments. I agree with the previous reviewer, be careful with the baking time. I set the timer for 45 minutes and discovered that I left the cake in the oven a bit too long. It wasn't burned but the edges were brown. The middle of the cake was moist and tasty, but the edges were very dry. Also, I will use the entire can of cranberry sauce in the future, rather than divided it into two layers. The sauce sort of disappeared into the layers once the cake was baked.
You could probably use the whole can of cranberry sauce. I only baked this cake for 45-50 min. and it was done. You may want to watch it the last few mintutes. Very tasty with a vanilla/orange glaze. Will use it again for the holidays.
