CRANBERRY LOAF CAKE with SAUCE

I think, can't say for sure, that my mother got this recipe years ago from a Jello Pudding and Pie Filling advertisement. It was with an attachment that read, "Pudding has revolutionized the whole world of cake baking, made cake from a mix taste better than ever."

1 pkg (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
1 pkg (4-serving size) lemon instant pudding and pie filling mix
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 can (1 lb) whole berry cranberry sauce, broken up
water
1 pkg (4-serving size) lemon cook & serve pudding and pie filling mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans; set aside.

In large mixer bowl combine the cake mix, instant pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, canola oil, and chopped pecans; blend. Once ingredients are blended, beat at medium speed for 4 minutes. Fold half the cranberry sauce into the mixture. Pour the mixture evenly into the two prepared loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and cakes are starting to pull away from pans. Do not underbake these cakes. Cool in pans for 15 minutes; remove cakes and cool completely on wire racks.

Place the remaining cranberry sauce in a large measure and add enough water to make 2 1/2 cups. Pour mixture into a saucepan and add the pudding mix, sugar, and salt. Cook while stirring over medium heat until the mixture comes to a full boil and thickens. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter. Serve this sauce warm over the cake slices.
