Cranberry Crumb Cake and Tate’s winner

Wow, once again I am late announcing the winner. My bad, I was knee deep in decorating mitten sugar cookies for my kids classes, like the 5 and 7 year olds will appreciate them, but whatevah.
I am so excited for the winner because you are getting some delicious cookies and an amazing cookbook from Tate’s Bake Shop
And the winner is
# 21 is Nadilah Sungkar Magee. Congrats to you. Please email me your address so Tate’s can get your goodies out to you.
And below is a delicious recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook.
Cranberry crumb cake. Perfect in every way. Cranberries are in right now and this is the perfect recipe to use them up.
When I made this, it was gone in about 24 hours. Who ate it? Don’t know. But I hear she is off to get her jaw wired shut so she will stop shoveling food in her mouth.

To make the topping:  Combine all topping ingredients –except walnuts– in a medium bowl. Mix with your fingertips or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add walnuts and toss all together. Set mixture asie in the refrigerator (this can be done the night before.)

To make the batter: 

In a small bowl, toss the cranberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar and set the mixture aside.  

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

In a large bowl beat the sour cream, eggs, oil, orange zest and vanilla until combined. Add flour mixture to the sour cream mixture and stir until combined. Fold in the cranberries.

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the batter.  Bake cake for 45 minutes or until a cake tester/toothpick comes out clean.
