Microwave Cranberry Crumb Cake
Recipe type: dessert
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce (I used Ocean Spray)

  1. In a medium mixing bowl using an electric mixer, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and butter. Add milk, egg, vanilla and cranberry sauce; mix well. Spread batter evenly in an 8-inch round ungreased microwave safe baking dish.
  2. Using an electric mixer, thoroughly combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter in a small mixing bowl. Sprinkle evenly over batter.
  3. Microwave on 70% power for 15 minutes. Let stand, covered with waxed paper, for 15 minutes. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before serving. Makes 1 coffeecake.
original recipe called for ¼ cup more brown sugar - it was still quite sweet so the next time I make it, I'm only going to add ⅓ cup total. I put in the zest of an entire orange and added a splash of orange extract.
Instead of streusel topping, I made a glaze using approximately 1 cup powdered sugar and orange extract. After mixing it until smooth, I heated it in the microwave and drizzled it over the warm cake.
