Judith's Garden Bed and Breakfast

Goshen, Vermont

Specialty Recipe

Orange Cranberry Buckle

This recipe is adopted from one in the King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook. Judith's copy of this wonderful book is so well used that it is nearly falling apart. King Arthur Flour is a great Vermont company with friendly, helpful employees. It sells many types of flours and baking equipment at its retail store in Norwich and through its catalog.

Topping Ingredients:
2 ounces butter
2 ounces all-purpose flour
zest of one orange, finely chopped
4 ounces turbinado sugar
Batter Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups dried cranberries
orange juice just to cover the cranberries
6 ounces all-purpose flour
2 ounces whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder (preferably non-aluminum)
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 ounces sugar
2 ounces butter
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon Boyajian brand pure orange oil
1/2 cup milk

Heat the cranberries and orange juice in the microwave for 2 minutes and set aside to soak. Prepare the topping by rubbing the butter into the flour and mixing with the other topping ingredients. Set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, thoroughly mix the flours for the batter with the baking powder and salt. Cream the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and orange oil. Beat until light and creamy colored. Gently fold the milk and the flour mixture with the creamed mixture. Add the cranberries with as much orange juice as it takes to make a smooth batter. Put in two small loaf pans or an 8-inch square pan. Cover with the topping.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack.

Note: This is a good recipe because it contains far less fat and eggs than a standard coffee cake recipe. Also, since half the fat in this recipe is in the topping, by leaving this off, you can offer a delicious and yet "heart-healthy" breakfast cake to guests who are watching their calorie intake.

This recipe also freezes well. A double batch can be mixed up and baked in a variety of sizes of pans. In this way, Judith is able to have a selection available for when unexpected guests drop in.
