Meet the Cook: When our children come home for the holidays, I make sure to bake this coffee cake. I always use fresh berries in season, then put a few bags in the freezer for later on. That way, we can enjoy this moist cake anytime we want!

This is my all-time favorite coffee cake. It’s great for breakfast, brunch or a snack. The tangy cranberries add a burst of color and the lemon-flavored streusel adds a unique flavor twist.—Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania
For years my grandmother and I would have a contest to see whose mincemeat coffee cake was the best (our families voted). After years of losses, I modified my original recipe and finally won. I share my winning recipe with you.
