This coffeecake has a crumb topping made with pecans, which are good sources of iron, potassium, zinc, copper and phosphorus. Coffeecakes are best served warm.


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 10-inch round pan with cooking spray.

To prepare the topping, combine flour, brown sugar and chopped pecans in a small bowl. Pour in melted margarine. Mix well — it should look crumbly. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk to blend.

In a separate bowl, mix together vanilla, sour cream, egg whites and margarine. Using an electric mixer at low to medium speed, beat until well blended, about 2 minutes. Add flour mixture to sour cream mixture. Using a spoon, gently blend together until smooth.

Put half of the batter into the pan. Top with chopped cranberries and dried fruit. Spread the remaining batter over the cranberries and dried fruit. Sprinkle with topping. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

Cut the coffeecake into 10 wedges and serve warm.
