Cranberry &Wild Blueberry Cake with Warm Vanilla Sauce

This cake makes a lighter dessert which can be very much appreciated after a heavy meal such as Christmas dinner! Serve the both the cake and sauce at room temperature. When the sauce is removed from the stove it will appear quite thin, but it thickens as it cools. Feel free to make the cake with all wild blueberries or all cranberries if you prefer. Thanks to the Wild Blueberry Assoc. for their partnership.
