I had frozen some extra homemade cranberry sauce (cranberries, brown sugar, oj and vanilla) from the holidays, and decided to use some to make this coffee cake for friends. The only thing I changed was I added a little orange juice to the batter (to go with my homemade sauce), and used pecans instead of almonds -- just a personal preference and I had them already. To avoid having the sauce sink to the bottom, I made sure to put a thick layer of batter in the bottom of the pan, then the sauce, then a thin layer of batter and the topping over that. I loved this cake! It was moist and pretty and would make a lovely gift wrapped and tied with a ribbon. Thanks for the recipe!
