This is soooo sweet! Painfully so. I would cut back on the sugar. Keep the glaze...it is nice. Maybe the canned cranberry is sweeter than what I'm used to? I used an entire 16oz can. I wish I had spread it out more. The texture of the cake is DIVINE. It is delicious! Just too sweet. ;) I made it Thanksgiving morning & plan to make it again Christmas morning. :) Made for the 11/09 Aussie Swap. Thank you!
This is a very delicious and easy to make coffee cake. I used the 9 x 13 dish as directed. Had to use a little Greek yogurt (approximately 1/4 cup) as I didn't have enough sour cream on hand. I made one other change and just lightly sprinkled the cake with a little powdered sugar as we didn't want it too sweet.
My, oh my! This definitely cures a cranberry craving! I could not find an 8-oz. can of whole cranberry sauce, but it worked out fine because I was able to add a little more than 8 oz., to really bump up the cranberry effect! It does make a nice presentation, too! Thanks for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2015 by a Toasted Tourist.
