This is a cake I really enjoyed. The cake has beautiful soft crumbs and is spotted with cranberries which gives a sourish but delicious aftertaste. The best part was undoubtedly the crispy streusel mix of nuts (I used walnuts instead of pecan) which complements the moist texture of the cake perfectly. While the recipe called for orange juice concentrate, I used fresh orange juice with pulp as the concentrate is not easy to find here. However, the taste of the orange was not too obvious and I think it would be good to add some orange zest as well. As fresh cranberries are not available, I substituted with dried ones which were just as delicious.
This looks so crunchy and just delicious dear Mich. It is my sort of cake especially with coffee and pecans.. yum! Have a good week. XReplyDelete
I've enjoyed this cake very much too! I use Sunkist Orange Juice Concentrate and it gives a lovely orangy taste to the cake. Another keeper recipe!

Moist coffee cake is a must, and it's really hard to find one that's nice and moist (have tried MANY dried coffee cakes...). Cranberries would be my first pick when I make it (oh but blueberries are equally tempting!). Pecan and orange sounds good with cranberries! I wish I have this with my tea!ReplyDelete
