Cranberry-Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping

Made from butter, flour, sugar and sometimes nuts, streusel cooks into a topping similar to the American crisp and the British crumble, terms that are often used interchangeably. Streusel can be sprinkled over muffins, cupcakes, pies or fresh, soft fruit before baking. In the oven, the butter melts and causes the dry mixture to cook into a crisp, crumbly topping. Without the butter, the mixture would simply scorch.

Feeds a crowd and easy to whip up for a breakfast or brunch gathering. I substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream and 1 cup of fresh cranberries for the 1/2 cup dried cranberries. I also sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg on the topping before putting it in the oven. A few things I may do next time - add more spices to the overall batter or mix in with the topping as it was a tad bit bland for my taste. Overall it was very light and quite a crowd pleaser. Also great for someone who doesn't like a sweet dessert!
Pros: Quick, Good Value, Easy, Adaptable, Will Make Again
Cons: needs some spices
