Classic Cranberry Coffee Cake


Cranberry Coffee CakeI love a delicious coffee cake in the morning. The other day I had some great dried cranberries available so I made this simple, classic cake. It was moist, delicious and just the right size to last for a couple of days. We all enjoyed the addition of the tart cranberries. Sometimes I make it with rhubarb, cherries or apple slices and they are delicious, too. No matter your choice have fun with it. And don’t forget to brew the coffee while this is baking!
