You'll like the texture of this tender coffee cake. The sour cream pairs well with the cherries, and the crunchy almonds make a nice accent. With a sweet streusel topping, it's hard to eat only one slice. —Linda Guiles, Belvidere, New Jersey

"Delicious, moist coffee cake. I added a little more almond extract but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The presentation is very nice; people thought I had bought it from a bakery!"

"This same recipe is in Taste of Home December 2015 called Cherry Almond Coffee cake with the variation of 2 1/2 c. of flour instead of 2 1/4 (maybe makes the dough less sticky?) and cherry preserves instead of cherry pie filling. I used a berry "fruit spread" which probably has less sugar, and it was delicious, although I then kind of wished for a bit of confectioner's sugar glaze, ha! I was searching for the Cherry Almond Coffee cake to add to my recipe box, and this one came up instead."

"I used pecans instead of almonds and baked this in a 13 x 9 pan. Tasty, and not too hard. I would use brown sugar in the topping next time."

"this is amazing. i made it for my birthday, instead of a frosted cake. i pared it with a nutty ice cream and it was great. i was a little unsure at first because i don't typically like cherry pie filling but, i was very pleased with how good it was in this. next time i think peaches or apples would be good... I'll have to try it and write another review."
