Cherries feature in this delightful coffee cake that has a pinch of cinnamon for extra flavour. Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.
I really loved this recipe! However, I did make a few simple changes. I added about 2 cups of cherries and baked the cake in an 8x8 glass dish which had to be greased and floured. The cake was beautiful~it was moist and had a slight crunch to the outside. I mixed up a little milk and confectioners' sugar to make a quick glaze to pour over the top for additional sweetness! The cake disappeared~we will make this cake again! Thank you for the recipe!! - 31 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
A very moist coffe cake bursting with fresh cherries! I used 2 cups like most of the others suggested. Instead of oil I used 1/2 c. Land O lakes light butter that I creamed together with the 1 c. of white sugar until light and fluffy. Then I added each egg one at a time to that mixture followed by the vanilla, and milk and an addition of 1/2 tsp. of almond extract. I baked mine in a prepared 8x8 glass baking dish (used Pam for baking) and baked it at 350 for 55 minutes. I topped it with a glaze made from 1 c. of confectioners sugar and 2 Tbsp. of milk. Next time I might top this with sliced almonds - it's a keeper for cherry season. - 28 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Flavour of this cake was lovely. But why did all the cherries go to the bottom of the cake? - 14 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
