Cherry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
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.

"This is one of my family?s favorite coffee cakes. I have made it several times for family gatherings. Everyone that has tried it, loves it. I also used blueberry filling and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing."

"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."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2012

"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."
