Oops, it's been a while since I've posted!
We had a snowy day here in Fredericton yesterday. Snow makes me want to cook - and bake! So I decided I would try another new-to-me recipe yesterday that's been on my "want to make" list since very early this year.
I saw this recipe: Cranberry Orange Pecan Coffee Cake on the JoyTheBaker blog (joythebaker.com). I am typically not a lover of fruit breads (unless it's banana bread). But her photo and the ingredients intrigued me. So I made it yesterday!
I have a bit of a confession though - I didn't have fresh cranberries, so I used frozen and thawed them before chopping them up. Little suggestion - chop them while they are still slightly frozen, it will be much easier and cleaner that way. AND - I had two large navel oranges, which gave me just under 1 cup of fresh squeezed juice, so I topped it up with some clementine juice that I had in my fridge.
Verdict: this is tasty! The crumble top (and glaze) makes it even better. I brought one loaf in to the office this morning (the other one is staying at my house). And I will probably make it again just before visiting the family at Christmas, to add something a little different to the sweets tray.
Speaking of Christmas - I don't have ANYTHING done yet. Sigh. I guess I'd better get at it, right?
Thanks for looking!
