How you doin’? Here is a quick, easy and delicious coffee cake that doesn’t even require an electric mixer. It’s a recipe you can make in different flavors by simply using different pie filling flavors. It is a very simple, tender, moist coffee cake made in a 7×11-inch baking pan.
While this cake is All-American, the first coffee cakes are thought to have originated in Germany. These were more like sweet breads than sweet cakes. According to the book Listening to America, by Stuart Berg Flexner, it wasn't until 1879 that the term “coffee cake” became a common term.
Your family will enjoy this cake for breakfast (brunch), lunch or dinner. You can reheat it in an oven at 350⁰F with just a tablespoon of butter on the top. A spritz of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream turns this from a coffee cake to an outstanding dessert. Delicious Cherry Coffee Cake with Crumb Topping is a recipe you will go back to time and time again.

Bake time: 35 to 45 minutes

ChefSecret: Here’s an interesting upscaling alternative… spread a half cup of whipped cream cheese over the batter before spooning on the cherries.
