OCEAN SPRAY:CANNED WHOLE CRANBERRY SAUCE IS THE KEY INGREDIENT,ALONG WITH ALMOND EXTRACT, IN MY RECIPE.Cranberries are enjoyed by my family as a relish or sauce with Turkey dinner, in a pie with raisins "Mock Cherry Pie", in quick bread, and in this coffee cake. Cranberries are seasonal and grow on the islands and on Cape Cod, and some years they are scarce; so I buy a bag or two and freeze them for later use.I have received this recipe from a friend, and it is also in The Fine Arts Cookbook,(1970) Boston, MA.
