1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Fat-free Milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pour melted butter into a 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 350 for 2 minutes. Remove from oven, and top with pecans and cranberries.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; stir with a whisk. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix after each addition.

Beat the egg whites with a mixer at high speed until soft peaks form using clean dry beaters; fold into batter. Spread batter over cranberries. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes on a wire rack. Loosen edges of cake with a sharp knife.

Place a plate upside down on top of cake pan; invert onto plate.

Combine whipped topping and cognac, and serve with warm cake.
