One of my favorite flavors of the whole holiday season is Cranberry. Whether it’s my Ginger Spiced Orange Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry Apple Crisp, Cranberry Orange Muffins or a Cranberry Margarita, I can’t get enough. This Orange Cranberry Coffee Cake is one of the best recipes and I can’t believe I’ve not shared it!
I actually photographed this last Christmas and never to posted it. It is one of of the favorite things we make for Christmas morning. It is so yummy. It never lasts long and everyone eyes the last piece! This was my middle daughter’s request a few weeks ago for her birthday breakfast in bed, too. This coffee cake uses the Ginger Spiced Orange Cranberry Sauce for the filling. I always make a triple batch of this stuff because it’s so good. It’s one of the most searched recipes each year and I get a lot of emails about it as well. You could also substitute any of your favorite fruit jams as well.
