This recipe turned out much different than I had planned, but it was still really good. I had been hoping to create a coffee cake with a crispy cranberry struesel. However, I didn't check my pantry for ingredients before I started my baking-oops!
After making the struesel, I went to the pantry to grab a box of French Vanilla cake mix and was bummed when I realized I didn't have one.
So I got out one of my favorite church cook books and found a recipe for a cake - Grandma Cake to be exact. It has to be good with a name like that, right?!
They were yummy warm out of the oven with ice cream. And they were nice and crunchy the next morning for breakfast (no ice cream!)
