Cranberry Tunnel Coffee Cake Recipe

16 servings, ready in 1 hour and 50 minutes

Filling: In small saucepan, bring cranberries, SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend and 1/4 cup (60 mL) water to boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until thickened and reduced to 3/4 cup (180 mL), about 8 minutes. Let cool completely.

Meanwhile, sprinkle almonds evenly in greased 10 inch (3 L) Bundt pan; set aside.

In bowl, beat butter with SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture alternately with sour cream, making 2 additions of dry ingredients and 1 of sour cream.

Spoon half of the batter into prepared pan. Drop filling by spoonfuls in ring around centre, leaving 3/4 inch (2 cm) border on both sides. Spoon remaining batter on top, smoothing gently.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until tester inserted in centre of cake comes out clean, 60 to 70 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes; invert onto rack to let cool completely.
