Cranberry coffee cake

More fun things to do with cranberries that aren't sauce.

From The Joy of Cooking:

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon each baking powder and baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups sour cream or plain/Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups cranberries

For streusel topping:
Pulse together in a food processor until mixture resembles coarse crumbs:
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup pecans or walnuts
2/3 cup brown sugar
5 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Whisk the flour, baking powder and soda, and salt together thoroughly. Combine the sour cream/yogurt and vanilla in a separate bowl (you can add a little orange or grapefruit zest to this, if you have any).

In a large bowl, beat on high speed sugar and butter until lightened in color and texture. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour mix in 3 parts, alternating with sour cream/yogurt mix in 2 parts, beating on low speed.

Spread evenly into a greased 13 x 9 pan. Top with cranberries. Top with streusel. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Let cool briefly and serve warm.
