Pear-Cranberry Coffee Cake

"My daughter and I enjoy this tender cake for brunch on the Saturday mornings we spend at home," writes Patricia Clack of Lake Forest, California. A delightful hint of orange from the quick bread mix blends the other fruit flavors and is simple treat.

    I asked my daughter what she would rate this recipe and she told me 4 out of 5. I made it for her since she rises early for her job and appreciates something she can eat in the car on her way there. I cut up the circular cake and give her a fresh piece each morning for a couple of mornings. Then I individually wrap the remaining pieces, freeze them and set out one piece the night before to thaw for each of the following mornings. She is very happy with this arrangement and I love using the pears from my garden!
