I love cranberries! I love the brightness of their color, the tart of the berries, and they are such a perfect holiday treat whether used in baking or for home decoration. This Sunday morning I have a recipe for cranberry coffee cake for you. Just in case I need to convince of more reasons to make this coffee cake, I have provided some health benefits of cranberries source.Suggested Health Benefits Cranberries
Ok on to the recipe! First, gather your ingredients for the cake. 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened, 1 cup white sugar, 1 eggs, 1 cup sour cream, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 2 cups fresh cranberries.
For the crumble topping, 1/3 cup dark brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 3/4 cup flour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease your baking dish, 9X13 pan.
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.
Add the eggs one at a time.
Then add the sour cream and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Add in the dry ingredients, the flour, the baking soda and the baking powder and incorporate the ingredients together well.
Add the cranberries into the cake mixture.
Pour the coffee cake mixture into your greased baking dish.
Make the crumble mixture then by combining all the dry ingredients into a small bowl.
Add in the melted butter and mix until it is crumbly looking like large clumps of wet sand.
Sprinkle this mixture on top of the cranberry coffee cake.
Pop in the oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when stuck in. Take out of the oven, let it cool for about 5 minutes, then slice, eat and enjoy! Happy Sunday!
