Cranberry Swirl Coffee Cake

Carol Junkins


Cranberries are an important crop in New England. This recipe produces a beautiful and delicious cake.
Love coffee cake with my coffee in the morning. Nice to make for Christmas morn while opening presents. This recipe and picture came from allrecipes. I would like it with almonds and almond extract.I will put a little almond flavoring in the icing as well.

I have another cranberry coffee cake posted but it is different but similiar to this one, can never have to many cranberry ones, well thats my theory.
Hope you enjoy it too !
