On the 9th Day of Sugar my true love gave to me . . . Apple Cranberry Cake with Nutmeg Butter Sauce
Ohhhh this cake is so divine and the nutmeg butter sauce is just completely naughty. I could drink this stuff. . .oh wait, I did actually drink this stuff, I just couldn’t help myself Ü.
If you are looking for a fabulous dessert for your holiday dinner, I’ve got your back today. This cake will wow the guts out of your guests, I promise. The tartness of the apples and cranberries is offset by this delectable nutmeg butter sauce. It’s just like the butter sauce for our family favorite cranberry muffins, but it has nutmeg added to it which is just so freaking delicious I can’t even tell you. I highly recommend you use freshly grated nutmeg, it’s worlds better than the kind you buy already ground up. It’s worth every. single. penny.
This cake is phenomenal, I promise. You really, really need this cake in your life. . . sooner than later.
