"This was a favorite of my family's when growing up - my Mom's specialty. I have entered this cake in several local agricultural fairs and it has won the blue ribbon three times and a best in show!"

1 (16 ounce) can
whole cranberry sauce
blanched slivered almonds
A delightful cake! Moist, and the almond flavor is just right.
This cake was good and as others have said it was moist and the almond flavor was just right (I didn't add the blanched almonds). However, it didn't come out as I had imagined it...my problem was too little batter. Although next time I'll try using a bundt pan instead of a tube (being that the bundt has less width to cover with batter).
It seemed more like stiff dough than batter and was too thick to pour and made lumps rather than coating the bottom of the pan. It was very hard to make layers of batter and cranberry sauce. I would use more sauce...but the batter really needs to be thinner to work out right. It was tasty, but I think I will have to keep looking because it was pretty hard to work with. Great taste though! Doubling the recipe did not work :( Took forever to cook!
This is a delicious cake with a wonderful texture. I'll definitely make this again and again.
Maybe I did something wrong, but this did not turn out as I had hoped. The almond extract was a little too much I thought. My girls really liked it though.
My whole family loves this recipe. In fact the last time I made it
my kids were eating before I iced it. I dusted it with confection's
sugar and they loved it. We love cranberries, I may add a little more
This coffee cake is marvelous. I've made it four times, twice for office Birthdays. Also, made it this Easter for my visiting family and they all wanted the recipe. Such a pretty cake...ummmmm good!
I found this cake to be very dry. I am also not fond of the almond extract in it.
