Cranberry Streusel Coffee Cake

I like coffee cakes for breakfast on the weekend, and this one is great for the Christmas season. Well, it’s good anytime really – buy fresh cranberries when they are in season and freeze them (just put the bag of fresh cranberries in the freezer) to make this later on too! It’s nice to make for a brunch or a morning coffee get together.
