Total Time: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.

Makes: 9 servings

"This recipe was given to me by a former neighbor," pens Doris Brearley from Vestal, New York. The yummy cake relies on baking mix, canned cranberry sauce and an easy nut topping, so it's truly a quick bread.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix, sugar, milk and egg. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Drop cranberry sauce by teaspoonfuls over batter. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over cranberry sauce. Bake at 400° for 18-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients; drizzle over coffee cake. Yield: 9 servings.

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!
