This cranberry cake is light, easy to prepare and goes great with a cup of coffee. The flavor of cranberry comes through in every sweet-tart bite...and the streusel topping looks so pretty. —Sue Ellen Smith of Philadelphia, Mississippi

"easy & excellent. The only change I made was that I used dried craisins instead of cranberries. I used 1 1/2 cups instead of the amount called for in the recipe."

"This was really good! I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda in the cake part (not the glaze)and don't believe that it altered the texture. I am making again for Christmas brunch. Even my kids liked it!!"
