The Cranberry Orange Coffee Cake was based on a wreath style coffee cake which used a rich sweet dough. These coffee cakes where filled with all types of fillings, shaped into a wreath. I used my Mom’s Swedish Bun recipe which is a very rich dough that is somewhat sweet. The filling is a cranberry jam freshly made with cranberries, apples and oranges with lots of sugar cooked into very thick consistency, then processed in a VitaMix until smooth. Then the Cranberry Orange Coffee Cake is topped with Orange Glaze, garnished with nuts, white chocolate and dried cranberries. Wow what a wonderful way to use cranberries. It tastes so good I give it two thumbs up and my two big toes.
Inspired by making cranberry sauce and cranberry fluff for the Holidays. Creating a whole new light and tangy dessert, that has tartness, with tangy cheese and light fluff with crunchy salty pretzel crust. The Cranberry Pie with Pretzel Crust is not a sweet rich pie, but perfect balanced ending to traditional holiday meal, making everyone wanting another piece of pie.
