Cranberry Coffee Cake

The November Challenge from Kathleen is to feature our Bundt pans in our posts.  For me, that means coffee cake and since it's November, I'm making my cousin's delicious Cranberry Coffee Cake.
We first experienced this delicious moist cake at one of our Apple Butter making weekends.  My cousin brought this to share for Saturday breakfast.  She graciously shared the recipe and I'm including it below.
I think we received this Bundt pan at our wedding shower over 26 years ago.  It gets used infrequently but I do make this recipe every fall.

I actually turned the coffee cake out on a pretty cake stand to get a photo before cutting.  Wonderful Hubby wanted to take a (rather large) slice of it to work before I had a chance to get the picture.  It still looks pretty tasty, though!

Have a beautiful Wednesday!

I've never tried with cranberry sauce. I think we do have it here and I'm planning to make this cake.
Thank you so much for sharing

Oh my gosh, that looks delish! I'm gonna be trying this recipe for sure.. I've been looking for my Mom's recipe for cranberry bread. I can't get the fresh cranberries she used in her recipe to do like hers did. They had a crust of sugar on them and didn't sink to the bottom. Also, she must have used some orange rind because it had a distinct flavor of orange mixed in there. If I ever run across that recipe... lol.

Delicious! Your post is making me wish that either fall or winter weather would arrive and actually stick around.

Great photos too, by the way.
