First, preheat the oven to 350.

In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs and almond extract and continue beating. Slowly add in the flour, baking powder, and salt then mix until combined. 

Once combined, fold in the cranberries and optional pecans. Note: the batter will be stiff.

Spread in a greased 13” by 9” pan and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
