It is delicious!! I did add more berries. My family loved it!

It turned out ok, but the cranberries "got lost", so next time i would double the berries. Simple coffee-cake.

For some reason my cake turned out really dark! I'm not sure about the taste. It's hard to rate because I'm not sure what it's suppose to taste like. I don't really like what I have though.
