Creamy Cranberry Coffee Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
Chopped cranberries and orange peel give this coffee cake bursts of tart flavor, but a cream cheese layer on top sweetens it nicely. It's so lovely, you'll want to serve it when company comes. -Nancy Roper, Etobicoke, Ontario

I made this ahead of time to put in the freezer for company - so I haven't tasted it yet but it looks perfect!

I can't tell you how many times I've made this delicious coffee cake! Sometimes I bake it in two 8x8-inch pans and freeze one for my hubby and I to enjoy at a later date. (45-50 min. at 350 degrees)

This sound absolutely devine, but I have a question. I have to do a brunch the Saturday after Thanksgiving and am wondering if I can make this ahead and freeze it for the brunch? Has anyone tried freezing it?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2011

I made this recipe 2 weeks ago and it turned out GREAT! As for saugurke's review on 11.29.10... the problem was not the cranberries, odds are your baking soda and baking powder wasn't fresh. This is why it did not rise. Follow the recipe amounts and it will turn out.
