Pre-heat oven to 350F (180C). Grease and flour a 9 1/2 - 10 inch (24cm) bundt pan or 9 inch cake pan or 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the middle and add the beaten eggs, sour milk, melted butter, vanilla, cranberries and almonds. Stir just to combine, 15-16 stirs only.
Spoon the batter into the prepared cake or loaf pan and bake for approximately 50-60 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick.
Let cool in pan then remove to a clean plate. Drizzle with glaze or dust with powdered / icing sugar. Enjoy!
