THB#20 Cranberry-Cashew Orange Coffee Cake

It's better late than never. I thought I would miss this bake again, after I missed the 19th bake (which I will still make cos I love lemony cake)
Fortunately I had the time to bake yesterday :)
My kind of cake, not too sweet after I adjusted the sugar used, and bursting with juicy tart cranberries, at the same time enjoying the crunchiness of the nutty streusel on top
Perfect with a cuppa. Yum!

I followed the recipe, but for sugar reduction I followed Joyce from Kitchen Flavours
Somehow, I find her preference for sweetness is more or less same as mine :)

I used 1/3 sugar for the batter (I used caster sugar). Replaced vanilla extract with orange extract and omitted nuts inside the batter. Reduced cranberries used to 1 cup only
For the streusel, I used 2 tbsps. caster sugar, and replaced pecans with cashews

For full recipe, please view Maria from Box of Stolen Socks
She has chosen to bake this wonderful cake :)

Our 20th bake for The Home Bakers, a baking group where we bake recipes from the book  "Coffee Cakes" by Lou Seibert Pappas, hosted by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours

Now, I still have time to bake the 21st bake. I'd better make the time soon :)


  1. Hi Alice,
    Thanks for catching up with us at THB!! Your cake looks FAB!

  2. Hi Alice, thanks for leaving so many messages in my blog earlier. I had been away(taking my blog break) for 5 weeks, just came back this week! This is a good looking cake, must be tasting marvellous with those generous toppings!

  3. Must be very flavourful with few type of ingredients added.

  4. Hi Alice,
    Looks like both of us have the same taste when it comes to sugar, less sweet the better! Haha!
    I omit the nuts in the batter too, and use it only for the topping. Yes, this is one lovely cake, glad that you did not miss this one out!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Alice, your cake is fabulous!

  6. Just mouthwatering...looks delicious!

  8. A beautiful cake indeed, we love eating cakes but still try to stay healthy so decreasing sugar is a great way to cut out on unnecessary calories and still get to enjoy our cakes:D
