This was originally from the "Moosewood Sundays" cookbook and was an instant hit around here...part coffeecake, part dessert - yummy! I've never had almonds in the house, but can vouch that it's great even without them. I've added in a bit of orange rind to the cranberry mix before too, to give it a nice zing. I have always used a Bundt pan...makes for a very pretty presentation for breakfast, brunch, tea, dessert, or gifts, especially around the winter holidays.
