White Chocolate Cranberry Coffee Cake Recipe

I love the combination of the fresh cranberries' tartness and the sweetness of white chocolate. To make a lighter version of this cake you can make it with light butter and only 1/2 cup white chocolate chips.

1/2 cup Less fat margarine
1/2 cup Light cream cheese
1 cup Brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup Splenda or Equal or (1/4 cup sugar)
2 Eggs, Large
1/2 cup Egg substitute
2 Tb Grated orange zest or (1 tsp orange extract)
3 Tb Orange juice
1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 cup Unbleached white flour
2 tsp Baking powder
1 1/2 cups Fresh or frozen cranberries
3/4 cup White chocolate chips

Oven Temp ~ 350°
Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 9 inch tube pan
Preheat oven, coat cake pan or bundt pan with canola cooking spray.

Add the margarine, light cream cheese, brown sugar and granulated sugar (or sugar substitute) to large mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, then egg substitute (1/4 cup at a time), orange zest and orange juice, mixing well and scraping sides of bowl at least once.
Measure a cup of whole-wheat flour and stir in the baking powder. Slowly add the whole-wheat flour mixture to the mixture in the mixing bowl, beating on low speed. Slowly beat in the white flour. Stir in the cranberries and white chocolate chips with a spoon.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake until toothpick inserted in the center of the White Chocolate Cranberry Coffee Cake comes out clean. Cool completely and serve.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
