Cranberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Have you ever had this happen to you? You go to the grocery, come home, unpack your groceries and find something you’re positive you did not put in your basket.

I’m used to things like Oreos, Klondike Bars, extra buttery popcorn & candy bars “magically” appearing in in the cart, but this time it was cranberries. I’m pretty safe in assuming the boyfriend was not the culprit; he is not cranberry fan.

Instead of letting them go to waste, I planned doing something with them for Thanksgiving dinner. And then I completely forgot about them until this weekend.

There you have it, the story of the mystery cranberries that led to making this Cranberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. Fascinating, I know.

The cake itself is quite tasty, but the cranberry and cream cheese filling really boost the YUM factor. Feel free to experiment with other berries. I’m thinking raspberries would be delish!
