I’m filing this under “Holiday Recipes” because I love the idea of having just-baked coffee cake on Christmas morning while unwrapping presents. Coffee cake is fast and easy and pretty-much fool-proof and the MSBH recipe is all that and more.
I made this coffee cake back in November for a meeting I hosted at my house on a Saturday morning. I didn’t have any of the frozen sour cherries that the recipe calls for so I substituted frozen cranberries. WOW! They were outta sight. Any frozen fruit would work well with this recipe.
Here is half of the batter in a tube pan with the cranberries on top. The rest of the batter will be spooned on top, then a simple streusel, and then the oven does the rest.
It came out of the pan easily enough and then a simple “Milk Glaze” is made with powdered sugar and milk and drizzled over top.
Slice it all up and enjoy! It was a big hit and I will definitely make this recipe again and again.
