Ingredients

Cake:

  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup sugar

  • ¾ cup margarine

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce

Icing:

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 tablespoon almond extract

  • water as needed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a fluted tube pan.

  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.

  3. Beat sugar and margarine together in a bowl until creamy. Add sour cream, eggs, and 1 teaspoon almond extract to sugar mixture; beat until smooth. Pour sugar mixture into flour mixture and mix to form a smooth batter. Pour 1/3 the batter into the prepared pan.

  4. Pour cranberry sauce into a bowl and stir. Spread 1/2 sauce over batter in the prepared pan. Pour 1/3 the batter over cranberry sauce, and spread second 1/2 cranberry sauce over the batter. Top with remaining 1/3 cake batter.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and cooked through, about 40 minutes.

  6. Whisk confectioners' sugar and 1 tablespoon almond extract together in a bowl until smooth, adding enough water for icing to reach a drizzling consistency. Drizzle icing over cake.
