    Mrs. Kulik's Note:

    This recipe, from USA Today, was a real find! The cake wasn't quite as dense as I imagined it might be, considering it's a pound cake. The cake is so delicious it doesn't necessarily need a sugary frosting that might cover up the flavors.

      Very good! Love the not too sweet cake and the tartness of the cranberries. It is moist too! I used my food processor to combine the almond paste/almond extract and sugar in step 5, pulsing it to the consistancy of sand. I did find 425 degrees a bit high and only baked it for 50 minutes, so be carefull, it could be my oven is running a bit on the hot side. I will make this again, its a keeper!
