4th Day of Christmas....

My true love gave to me a lovely Cranberry Cake Recipe.
You will love it. I promise. I took this one to all the school functions

when our daughter was in elementary school.
There was never a crumb left. I have to hide it if I want
a piece.

Enjoy !!

Cranberry Cake

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed
2/3 cup chopped pecans
Whipped cream, optional

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar, until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5 minutes. Add butter and extract; beat 2 minutes. Stir in flour just until combined. Stir in cranberries and pecans. Spread in greased 13-in.x 9-in.x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream if desired. Yield: 16-20 servings

Merry Christmas !!

That sounds wonderful!! I know what you mean about hiding things. I don't eat sweets very often but when I do want a little something sweet I go to my secret hiding place. If I didn't do that there would be nothing around when my sweet tooth kicked in. Have a fabulous weekend.
