Apples and cranberries just scream Autumn to me and I love the combination. This coffee cake is simple to prepare and is a nice dish to serve for breakfast or brunch. Because this coffee cake cooks in the Crock-Pot for 2+ hours you are going to either want to start it early in the morning or make it up the night before. I either put it together and cook it after dinner, and then put it in the fridge and warm it up in the morning or I start it in the morning and we have a brunch and serve a larger meal along side. This is also nice to take to potlucks or give as a little treat to a new mommy or someone sick and needing something home cooked. I also think this would make a lovely Christmas brunch dish!
