Carbquik Recipe: Cranberry (or cherry) Almond Coffee Cake


1 1/2 c. whole cranberry sauce or sugar free canned cherry pie filling
1 2/3 c. Carbquik
1 1.2 tsp. Baking powder
3/4 c. sugar substitute (I used 2 tsp. Liquid Sweet N Low plus 1/2 c. xylitol)
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs
1 tsp. Almond extract
1/2 c. Hoods milk

TOPPING: 1/2 c. almond flour, 1/4 c. equivalent brown sugar substitute (I used 2 tsp. Sweet N Low brown), 1/4c. melted butter, 1/4 c. sliced almonds, 1 tsp. Cinnamon.


Combine Carbquik and baking powder in a small bowl; set aside. Cream 3/4 c. sugar sub, shortening, eggs, and almond extract in a large bowl. Add the Carbquik mixture to the creamed mixture. Mix well, then add milk, and continue mixing until it forms a batter.
Spread half the batter in a well greased 9 inch square pan. Spread cranberry sauce (or cherry) over batter. Spread remaining batter over cranberry sauce. Blend topping and put over all.
Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes.
