Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13 cake pan with parchment paper with a slight overhang and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the eggs, melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Using an electric hand mixer, mix on medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes. Fold in cranberries.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking sheet.
Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake for 31-38 minutes, or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean.
Let cool completely and cut into slices or small squares.
To Make the Sauce:
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.
Cook until the sugar and butter melts and everything has blended. Turn up the heat and boil for one minute.
