Cranberry Almond Bundt Cake

I was super excited that I found a store that had cranberries early this November, I found them at the 99 cent store…. Of course you can get them now at the stores because thanksgiving and Christmas is a pond us… I just stocked up on them and put them in the freeze until I need them. So onto this wonderful recipe… again from fine cooking magazine winter 2004.  This is a really easy recipe , the only thing is to make sure that the almond paste you buy is still good to use. It happened to me and I had to run out and get more plus tell the store that their almond pastes were expired.

Here’s the part you need to make sure you spray your bundt pan very well. I spray my pan, I thought was well enough but the cake stuck to the pan… Man I was so upset:(

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, spreading the batter evenly with the rubber spatula. Place on cookie sheet and slide into the preheated oven 350 F for 35 to 40 minutes.
