Easy Coffee Cake

This from-scratch coffee cake is quick to put together, and it easily serves a crowd. While it's delicious with peach or apricot pie filling, I like to make it with cherry or strawberry filling during the holidays.

    I have made this twice and it turned out well both times. The first time that I made it, it was thinner than I prefer so next time I made it in a 13x9x2-inch pan and baked for approximately 30 minutes, which worked well. I also varied the second one by using cherry pie filling rather than peach. I lvoe that the flavor can be changed by simply altering the type of pie filling used. This tasted so good and was very pretty. Next time I will try sprinkling some almonds on top (which I think will go well with the almond extract used in the icing)!

    I usually don't like canned fillings, but this was amazing! I can't believe how easy it was to make too. The flavor gets even better after it sits a day.

    This was a breeze to put together on Christmas morning. I subbed cherry pie filling for the festive look. I loved the coffee cake was made in a large 15x10 pan. Perfect for serving alot of guests.
