What To Do With Leftover Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Nut Coffee Cake

I made homemade Cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries this year.  It was delicious, but I had a lot leftover.  I started looking around online for ideas of what I could do with it so I wouldn’t have to waste it.  I found lots of recipes for cranberry muffins which would probably be good, but just didn’t sound very appealing to me.  What I did find that sounded appealing to me was Coffee Cake.  I couldn’t find a vegan recipe so I took one that I found and veganized it.  The original calls for Bisquick, but i don’t use that stuff. If you do use it it can be substituted for the Baking Mix.
