The Don’t Waste 80 Cents of Yogurt, but Turned Out Delish Orange-Cran Coffee Cake

Really, it’s all in the simplistic name. One day I was about to lose 80 cents of Greek yogurt to expiry. I also had oranges and cranberries….and Bischoff cookies. Hence was born, this coffee cake for the ages.

Craggy peaks of Bischoff cookie crumble offset the soft cake, creating a Mars-like atmosphere….so I imagine.

The Accidentally, Really Delicious Cran-Orange Yogurt Coffee Cake

  • 1.5 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 2/3 c. sugar

  • 2 small containers of Greek yogurt

  • ~Half of a package of Bischoff cookies, crushed
  • 2 T. flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease one 8″ cake round pan then line with parchment paper, greasing that also.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl combine sugar and orange zest. Rub together with fingers so that the orange oils are released.
  4. Whisk in orange juice, eggs, yogurt, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  5. Pour in dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  6. Stir in cranberries.
  7. Pour batter into prepared cake pan.
