Now for the Apple-Cranberry Coffee Cake recipe:
Apple-Cranberry Coffee Cake
Makes one 8-inch round (or 4 1/2x 8 1/2 -loaf pan)
Oat streusel topping
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup well packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 apples, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries or 3/4 cup cranberry relish (since we all have lots of leftovers from the holidays)
1/4 cup well packed brown sugar
Grated zest of 1/2 orange
1 pound (grapefruit sized piece) Brioche dough (we have a brioche dough in each of our 5 books and all of them will work for this recipe, including the gluten-free recipes) or any other enriched dough from the books.
To make the coffee cake:
This recipe is slightly different than the one in the book, because I made it in a loaf pan and not an 8-inch Springform Pan, but both methods result in a wonderfully tasty coffee cake.
Butter the baking dish
Divide the dough into 3 pieces and roll each piece out to fit the shape of your pan. Line the bottom of the pan with one piece of the dough.
Mix together all the ingredients to make the streusel until it is evenly coated with the butter. Set aside.
Mix together the apples, fresh cranberries, sugar and zest. (If you are using cranberry relish, then leave it to the side, don’t mix it with the apples, although you could do that too).
layer the dough with 1/3 of the apples and cranberries,
then top with 1/3 of the streusel. Repeat with the next layer of dough, apples, cranberries and streusel.
Repeat again with the final layer of each, then cover and let the coffee cake rest for about 90 minutes. Letting it rest will result in lighter layers of dough and more even baking.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake for about 55-60 minutes (It should feel set in the middle when poked).
Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the pan before removing from pan.
Allow to cool to room temperature.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
The rolling pin and loaf pan were gifts from the companies, but the opinions of them are all ours!
