Cranberry Coffee Cake Wedges Recipe

Cranberry Coffee Cake Wedges Recipe

“A friend gave me this recipe, but it was with raisins and regular sugar, butter and sour cream which I changed to Splenda, light butter and fat-free yogurt. My husband can't tell I've changed anything but the raisins!” Carol Barbee - Jasper, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar blend, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold reduced-fat butter
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. Place cranberries in a small bowl; add boiling water. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar blend, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; stir in reserved cranberries. Combine yogurt and egg yolk; add to crumb mixture and stir until a soft dough forms (dough will be sticky).
  • 3. Turn onto a floured surface; gently knead 6-8 times. Transfer to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Pat into a 9-in. circle; cut into eight wedges, but do not separate. Beat egg white; brush over dough. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar blend; sprinkle over the top. Bake at 425° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.
