Notes & Options:

There are lots of ways to modify this cranberry coffee cake to spice it up, down or just change it to suit your palate. You can try:

– Adding walnuts to make it crunchier. Use walnut pieces or chopped almonds and sprinkle them in with the cranberries before pouring the mixture into the pan.
– Add 1/2 tsp each of nutmeg and ginger if you want it holiday spicy-like.
– This recipe is cranberry rich. If you’d prefer a higher cake-to-fruit ratio you can half the amount of cranberries to 1 cup instead.
– Fresh berries are always best, but frozen ones work just as well as long as you thaw them and drain the excess cranberry juice first.
