What are the benefits of cranberries?

In this Vegan Cranberry Pecan Coffee Cake, one of the star ingredients is obviously the cranberries. I love cooking and baking with cranberries because they are so versatile. Lots of people only use cranberries in cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving, but what they often forget is that they can be enjoyed year-round in so many different recipes. Toss them in salads, add them to your healthy bowls, oatmeal, or bake them into your favorite banana bread. Seriously, you can do so many things with them and the best part is that they are healthy.

Cranberries are a powerhouse of antioxidants, they can boost your immunity, combat disease like cancer, and even prevent dreaded UTI’s. For this recipe, I used Patience Fruit & Co. cranberries because I love their products. They sell dried and fresh cranberries that are naturally sweetened and so delicious.

How do you make Pecan Coffee Cake? 

This recipe is simple. It takes a little time to put together and bake, but I promise that it’s easy and will be worth it. Your first step to start is to preheat that oven and grease or butter your favorite springform cake tin or pan. 

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Then add the egg replacement and continue to stir to combine (if you don’t want to make this vegan, you can use a regular egg too). In a third bowl, combine your flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cacao or instant coffee and salt. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir well well intermittently adding in the yogurt. If the batter is too thick, just add the almond milk in 1 tbsp. intervals.

Now, to the bowl add the fresh cranberries and pecans and stir it up!

Pour the batter into your pre-greased baking tin and bake the cake for about 1 hour or until its toothpick approved! Top with your favorite Vegan Chocolate Frosting and some cranberries!

Into another bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cacao or instant coffee and salt.

To the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients alternatively between the yogurt.  Stir till well combined. If the batter is a bit too thick, slowly add in the almond milk add needed, in 1 tbsp. intervals.

Now, to the bowl add the fresh cranberries and pecans.  Stir the mixture till well combined.

Pour the batter into your pre-greased baking tin.

Notes

1 Egg replacements:  1 Serving Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacement, Flax Egg (1 tbsp. ground flax + 3 tbsp. warm water)  Apple Sauce  (3 tbsp) or 1 mashed overripe banana

If you do not have any egg replacements on hand, a regular egg works.

NOTE: be sure to run a knife between the cake and the tin before unmoulding.

NOTE: you can make cranberries fancy!  Simply add 1 cup to a bowl, add some lime and some sugar.  Freeze them and use as garnish.
