1 (16 ounce) can
whole berry cranberry sauce
water as needed
I am not typically a big fan of coffee cakes, but, my husband is and also loves cranberries,so, this seemed a win win. I was pleasantly surprised that both my husband and I loved it! The batter is thick, but, velvety which does make it somewhat difficult to spread into a floured pan, so, I probably didn't do it justice trying to layer with the cranberry sauce. It still tasted wonderful though. I think that the glaze is supposed to have 1 tsp. and not 1 tbsp. of almond flavoring. I added about 1/2 tbsp. of flavoring before I realized and it was almost overwhelming. Luckily I stopped at 1/2 tbsp! I also used butter instead of margarine. The cake also took about 48 minutes in my oven to cook, but, ovens do vary so just be sure to test yours to be sure it is cooked. I test mine with a long wooden skewer. The cake was perfectly moist and the cranberry flavor was a nice touch. I will definitely make again.
