With its pretty layer of cherries and crunchy streusel topping, this coffee cake is great for breakfast. Or you can even serve it for dessert. —Gail Buss, Beverly Hills, Florida

"does the yeast have to be prepared first or just pour it in?"

"Delicious and very easy. I will definitely make this again. The only change I would make was to make one and one-half times the amount of glaze and I put it on the cake right as it came out of the oven. Next time, I will mix cold butter with the remaining cake mix and sprinkle it over the top. The melted butter mixed with the remaining cake mix turned into batter which I just evenly dropped by tablespoonfuls over the top of the coffee cake. That was good, but a true streusel topping would be good, too."

"My whole family liked this. I added some nutmeg and almond extract to the cake batter. Left the glaze off. It is sweet enough without it. Just dusted it with powdered sugar."
