Cranberry-Apple Coffee Cake
Source: Eating Well

Tip: To make quick work of chopping cranberries, place whole berries in a food processor and pulse a few times until the berries are coarsely chopped. Kitchen Note: A nonreactive pan-stainless steel, enamel-coated or glass-is necessary when cooking acidic foods, such as cranberries, to prevent the food from reacting with the pan. Reactive pans, such as aluminum and cast-iron, can impart an off color and/or off flavor in acidic foods.
