Cranberry Square Cake is a favorite for Christmas with my family and it is so beautiful.

Southern Lady Cranberry Square Cake Brews

A wonderful cranberry square cake for Christmas. I make this square cake often because it is good at any time of the year. You can easily replace different fruits and berries. This dessert is well preserved for several days in a cool place. Usually I just put it under a cake cover and it never holds much time in my house. This cake is a delicious coffee. This cranberry dessert is also a great gift.
