  • In a medium bowl, combine the remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. A food processor can be used for this step and pulse a few times. Transfer to a large bowl and make a well in the center. 
  • In a small bowl, combine egg, milk and lemon or orange zest. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy and thick). Fold in cranberry mixture. Spoon batter into prepared pan and smooth out evenly with floured hands. Sprinkle streusel topping over batter in pan. 
  • Bake at 375 degrees about 23 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly; serve warm. Makes 9 servings.
