Hello December!

Every year at Christmas I make this incredibly easy recipe for Christmas Cake! It is quick, easy and delish! Everyone will want the recipe so be sure to print copies for everyone that you share this cake with!
Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 12 oz fresh cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar until slightly thickened and light in color, about 5-7 minutes. The mixture should almost double in size. The eggs work as your leavening agent in this recipe, so do not skip this step. This mixture should form a ribbon when you lift the beaters out of the bowl. Add the butter and vanilla; mix two more minutes. Stir in the flour until just combined. Add the cranberries and stir to mix throughout.
  2. Spread in a buttered 9x13 pan. (This pan is my favorite!) Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. (I baked mine for 43 minutes.) Let cool completely before cutting into small slices. I cut mine into fairly small pieces, about 1"x2", so that they could be easily eaten at a party. Enjoy!
