Cranberry Cake

Source: My mom/probably some cookbook somewhere

Yaaay! The Christmas season is upon us. I am staunchly against any and all Christmas things before Thanksgiving (I almost went into a rage when I saw Santa at the mall early November), but now I can start enjoying it. We put up our tree and decorations this weekend, and I am making Cranberry Cake for a meeting I have tomorrow.

To be honest, I don't even LIKE cranberries. I don't like sour things in general. But this cake is super yummy, thanks to 2 cups of sugar and a teaspoon of almond extract.

Best of all, it only has 5 ingredients and is a snap to put together!

Cranberry Cake

2 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of butter, softened
3 eggs
1 teaspoon of almond extract
2 cups of flour
1 package of cranberries (I used a 7.5 ounce container, anything close will do.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together sugar and butter. Add in eggs, one at a time, and almond extract. Add in flour and mix well. If using a mixer, remove from mixer and stir in cranberries. Pour into a 9 x 13 dish. The mixture at this point is pretty thick, so you'll have to spread it out. Once done, it should be about an inch to an inch and a half high. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool and slice. Enjoy!
