An adopted recipe, I have made this ahead when having company over for and easy breakfast. Original Intro: A great moist coffee cake.

Nice and moist. It didn't rise as much as I thought it would. I used dried cranberries. Easy to make. Plan to make it again. Thanks. Oops! Just realized that I forgot to add the almond extract! Sigh.UPDATE: i have now made this cake 3 times since my first review. I'm addicted! I now use dried cranberries and 1 1/4 tsp almond extract and bake it for 30 minutes in a 9X13 pan. It is the best coffee cake I have ever tasted. Next time, I may use chocolate chips instead of the dried fruit and see how that works.
