Line 2x 20cm round baking tins with baking parchment. Preheat the oven to 160'.
Break up the white chocolate into a bowl. Bring the cream to a simmer over a low heat then pour over the chocolate stirring to melt.
Place in the fridge for around 4 hours until cool, then whip until light and fluffy.
In a seperate bowl whisk the butter, sugar and cinnamon until light and creamy, then whisk in the eggs one at a time.
Through a sieve gradually fold in the flour, almonds (or amaretto), baking powder and salt.
Add in the frozen cranberry and mix thoroughly.
Divide the mixture between the two tins and bake for 45-50 mins.
