This is delicious and great for the Holidays. One of our neighbors made it for us a few years ago and now it is one of our favorites. It is really moist and the funny part is...we don't even like cranberries! But we love this so try it and see what you think.

Cranberry Coffee Cake
INGREDIENTS • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened • 1/2 cup sugar • 2 eggs • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • 2 cups all-purpose flour • 2 teaspoons baking powder • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1/8 teaspoon allspice • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce (We added a small amount of mik to the batter because it seemed a little bit dry and it turned out perfect!) • TOPPING: • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar • 1/2 cup chopped pecans • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, meltedDIRECTIONS 1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; add to the creamed mixture alternately with bananas. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Top with cranberry sauce. (Sometimes we use a large square pan for a thicker cake) 2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, pecans (optional...we didn't) and flour; stir in butter. Sprinkle over cranberries. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Enjoy!!! Ciao...Taylor & Jordan
