We eat this colorful, moist cake at our women's church meetings. It's really easy to make and very tasty. The almond flavoring really blends well with the cranberries. I buy bags of cranberries when there are sales during the holidays, then freeze some so I can enjoy this treat all year round. For those with hard nut allergies, leave them out, or try sunflower seeds or peanuts. Vanilla extract can be substituted for almond extract.
