Iced White Chocolate Cranberry Coffeecake

Iced White Chocolate Cranberry Coffeecake is a tasty coffeecake that will make you drool! It’s filled with white chocolate chips, craisins, bananas and walnuts and then glazed with a superb Citrus Icing to die for! No kidding. The icing is a basic butter and powdered sugar icing but it includes orange juice and lemon juice which work together to form one amazing icing. While I could have made this in a regular loaf pan, I was really wanting to bake it in one of my cast-iron skillets instead.

This recipe begins with my basic banana bread recipe, but instead of chocolate chips I used white chocolate chips. I added craisins and walnuts. Then I iced it with a terrific Citrus Icing which I found on a cookie recipe. Together the combination is incredibly delicious.

If you’re looking for a tasty coffeecake recipe with a luscious icing on top, then whip up a batch of Iced White Chocolate Cranberry Coffeecake sometime. It is mouthwatering and delicious. And, you will find the recipe rather straightforward and not too complicated.

It’s also a nice coffeecake to make up for special occasion breakfasts and holidays.  You can toss this in the oven to bake the same time you are baking other breakfast casseroles and they will finish close to the same time. Although I usually bake this the day before I’m going to serve it so I can glaze the cake after it’s cooled. Either way it’s a terrific coffeecake for whatever ails you!

I initially posted this recipe in March of 2014. I recently remade the recipe (June 2017) for our Friday night care group so I shot a few new pictures. While I made the coffeecake for dessert, it’s also terrific for breakfast.

Bake coffeecake at 350 for about an hour. Mine took 65 minutes. Your oven may be quicker. When a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean the bread is done. Allow the bread to cool completely.

Tasty banana bread recipe with white chocolate chips, craisins, walnuts and frosted with a scrumptious Citrus Icing. This recipe can use either white sugar or Sucanat.
Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar (or Sucanat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 mashed ripe bananas
  • 2 cups Gold Medal UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (Bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 1 heaping tsp. baking powder
  • 1 heaping tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup finely diced walnuts
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup craisins
Instructions
  1. Cream butter, sugar (or Sucanat), eggs, bananas, salt, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended.
  2. Stir in flour, walnuts, white chocolate chips and craisins.
  3. Pour into well-oiled cast-iron pan and bake at 350° for 60-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Allow bread to cool.
  5. Frost with Citrus Icing.
Notes
You can use either white sugar or Sucanat in this recipe. But I recommend sugar over Sucanat because Sucanat has such a strong, unusual taste if you’re not used to it.[br][br]Sucanat is not quite as sweet as regular sugar. It is evaporated cane juice without the excess refining of regular white sugar. It has more of a molasses taste. If you don’t like the taste of molasses in bread or sweets recipes, than substitute white sugar.
