Cranberry Christmas Coffee Cake

We had this for breakfast one day this week when Dale requested coffee cake and I was in the mood for Christmas food.

The nutmeg gives it a hint of eggnog flavor, and the cranberries add definite holiday flair!  It was easy enough for a week day but special enough for even Christmas Day.

1 egg
1/4 c sour cream
1/2 c milk
1/4 c vegetable oil
3/4 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 c fresh cranberries

additional cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbs butter

Beat egg in a large mixing bowl.  Add sour cream, milk, oil, sugar, and vanilla; mix well.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir until almost combined; add cranberries and stir until just combined.  

Pour into greased 8x8 baking dish.  Batter will be thick; smooth into pan with back of a spoon.  Sprinkle with a fine dusting of cinnamon and the brown sugar.  Top with thin pats of butter.  

Bake at 375 for 40 minutes and beginning to turn golden.

Merry Christmas!
