I found the base of the coffee cake to be on the dry side, which I believe is due to the bisquick. I think it would be better if the cranberry was in the middle of the cake instead of on top. As I cut it, pieces of cranberry were toppling off.

Mu husband likes a particular coffee cake and frowns on any other that I attempt to serve him - till this one. He's been happily eating this coffee cake every morning and just had a piece for a snack. "Where did you get this recipe?" he asked me. "It's really GOOD!" I asked him if it is moist enough and he said yes, very...which is great because I find cakes made with Bisquick to be kind of dry sometimes. I have already added this recipe to my "Favorites" because Jack loves it and it was very quick and easy to make. The only thing I did differently was to add a dash of almond flavoring to the glaze since almond goes so well with cranberry! Thank you for this "keeper" of a recipe!

I was so excited to see this recipe and had to try it since Doris Brearley is one of the best cooks in NYS! I lived with the Brearley family in Vestal when I was a 1st-year teacher in 1968-69. Many of her recipes are among my cherished collection of family favorites to this day! You've still got it, Mrs. B! I love you!Mary Dillon, Midlothian, VA
