In bowl, whisk brown sugar with butter until blended. Scrape into 12-cup (3 L) oval glass baking dish, spreading evenly. Layer apples and cranberries over top.

Cake: In large bowl, beat butter with granulated sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and orange rind. In separate bowl, whisk flour, ground almonds, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk, making 3 additions of dry ingredients and 2 of milk. Spoon over fruit, smoothing top. Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
