This is a recipe that came from my Mom's index cards. I have made this recipe SO many times!! I love this recipe!! This recipe calls for the cranberry's to spread over the top just before baking. When I was helping my Mom making it, and I accidentally added the cranberry's in with the coffee cake and mixed it all up. My Mom was furious and chewed me out. She went ahead and made it then profusely apologized to me, since it was 10 times better the way I made it then the way she made it!!! One of the high lights of my childhood! You can use pretty much any fruit that you would like. You may need to adjust the cooking time according to how 'wet' the fruit is. You can also substitute the fruit juice for the water for more fruit flavor.

I broght this to a church breakfast and it was a big hit. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and added 3/4 cup of cranberry sauce instead of 2/3. I followed the rest of the directions exactly and it was delicious and moist. Thanks for Sharing!

Recipe was very easy to follow. Took little prep work and was easy to make. Took a little longer to cook then time given, but other then that all directions were accurate. We made it using apple sauce instead of cranberry sauce, and used apple juice instead of water to give it a stronger apple flavor. If we were to redo the recipe we would have added apple slices to give a stronger flavor and more texture.

Very good! Note that the baking temperature and pan size are not specified in the recipe. I used a 8 by 8 inch square pan and baked at 350 degrees F. It also took slightly longer than stated, about 30-35 minutes for me. As per a previous review, I would also add more cranberry sauce to this the next time. Very easy to make.
