Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and eggs in large bowl until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Beat in melted butter and almond extract. Add flour and stir until well blended. Stir in cranberries and pecans.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Transfer to rack and cool completely.
