Now that we are almost a full week past Thanksgiving, I am sure most of you are on the tail end of your leftovers. If you are anything like me, the sight of more turkey may just make you spontaneously combust. Being a food blogger, we started early like November 1st kind of early. Since then, we have had the full meal followed by at least a week of leftovers 3 times. Not that I’m not thankful, because I am beyond words, I just am ready for some red meat!!!
One thing that I have noticed is that cranberry sauce always seems to outlast the other leftovers. Perhaps it’s because I am the only one that enjoys it on my Turkey sandwiches or maybe it is because I always make so much because it makes my house smell amazing while cooking. Either way, I always have a ton leftover.
Last year, I made a delicious Leftover Cranberry Sauce Orange Cake that was quite the hit. My normal cranberry sauce hating kids seem to no longer have a problem when it is sandwiched between buttery sugary cake layers. Who can blame them right?
This year I decided to put the extra sauce into some coffee cake. The tart sauce was a perfect compliment to the nutmeg and cinnamon sprinkled coffee cake. I may go as far as saying this was better than last year’s cranberry sauce leftover redesign. It’s perfect with a cup of coffee or as an afternoon snack. Enjoy!
