Here is the recipe for one of the desserts we had last night.
This has been a favorite family recipe for generations.

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pint sour cream
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 can WHOLE BERRY cranberry sauce
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Cream margarine and add sugar. Add unbeaten eggs and mix. Add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream. Add flavoring. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan. Put layer of batter on bottom, little more than half the batter. Add half the cranberry sauce. Layer remaining batter. Layer remaining cranberry sauce and sprinkle with nuts.
Bake at 350 for 55 minutes. Cool 5 minutes then remove from the pan.
Frosting: Mix well 3/4 cup confectioners sugar, 2 Tablespoons warm water and 1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring. Spread over warm cake, letting it drizzle over the sides.
