Cherry Coffee Cake

This recipe comes from a 1994 issue of Southern Living.  When I first made it, it immediately became a family favorite.  Since President's Day is here, I thought it would be a good choice.  It's a great coffee cake to have anytime.

1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix, divided
1 cup flour
1 package yeast
2/3 cup warm water (120-130 degrees)
2 eggs
1 can cherry pie filling (or any other fruit filling)
1/3 cup butter

Combine 1 & 1/2 cups cake mix, flour, and yeast in a bowl; add warm water, stirring until smooth.  Stir in eggs.

Spoon batter into a greased 13 x 9 x  2-inch pan. (I actually used two pans, an 8" square & a deep dish pie pan.)   Spoon pie filling evenly over batter; set aside.  Cut butter into remaining cake mix with pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle over pie filling.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  Cool in pan on wire rack.  Drizzle with Glaze, and cut into squares. 

Makes 15-18 servings.


1 cup powdered sugar
1 T. light corn syrup
1 T. water ( may need a little more)

Combine all ingredients; drizzle over cake.

  1. Oh, this looks so good! I might just have to try it. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I love anything coffee-cake "like" this looks great. I have to be honest that I usually end up eating the yummy crumbles off the top first then the rest! HA!

  3. This is Bobby's kind of coffee cake...he loves the crumbles. I never make my own coffee cake, but I think I could handle this!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog! I really appreciate your lovely thoughts. The Cherry coffee cake's recipe sounds easy and quick by starting with a cake mix. I totally agree with you about Word Verification and don't like it one bit! I have spent weeks trying to locate how to turn it off. I think I have finally ..... finally been successful! I didn't even know it was on my blog until someone mentioned it in a comment. That is when I began my hunt. As you can tell I am not well versed in Blogger. My main time is spent helping my 89 year old mother who recently had an accident. My husband is handicapped and needs my assistance then about a week he fell trying to use his walker. The setting of my table and posting it on my blog is a form of relaxation for me. I really love that you took time to visit Tea Party. Please, come back again and let me know if the Word Verification is turned off! Thanks So Much! Happy Tea Party! Pam
