Cherry Coffeecake

 It's teatime inside today for we've had sooooo much rain in the Dallas area lately!  Can you join me for some cherry coffee cake?  I'll pour you a cup of tea, too.  I'm using my darling cherry apron and tea holder that was gifted to me a few years ago from Stephanie.  My deacon's bench has been in my life for about 47 years now, and is a staple around my home, and has moved from Ohio, to Michigan to Texas.

 Don't you just love this cherry teacup that was also gifted to me?  It's so vintage looking, don't you think?

Yield: 15-18, or more, depending on size cut

Cherry Coffee Cake

This is a quick and easy coffee cake, using a cake mix, but containing yeast. My family loves it!


For Cake:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix, divided (See NOTE)
  • 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
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 T. light corn syrup
  • 1 T. water ( may need a little more)


How to cook Cherry Coffee Cake

For Cake:
  • 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. Pour cherry 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.
For Glaze:
  • Combine all ingredients; drizzle over cake.


Since cake mix sizes have changed in weight, and now weigh 15.25 ounces, I buy an extra cake mix to weigh out the additional measure to equal 18.25 ounces.

 My son, Tim, and DIL, Julie, along with my granddaughters, Avery, and Ella treated me to Brunch at a nearby restaurant, on the day before Mother's Day.   

 My grandson, Caiden, turned 14 on Mother's Day!!  Happy Birthday, sweet boy!

 My daughter, Molly and her four kids brought brunch over to my home.  It was so tasty, and Cissy helped make the food.  In the  back row, left to right is Connor, Riley, and my son, Mike. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!  Thank you for your visit!  xo

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:


  1. Your bright and happy cherry apron is a joy to behold; as is the sweet little teacup. This pretty does evoke a vintage feel. I love your deacon's bench and love the fact that it has travelled with you to each of your homes. I have just enjoyed dinner and sure would love a piece of your cherry coffee cake, dear Kitty. =)

  2. The coffee cake sounds great Kitty (wish I had a slice now) and the tea cup reminds me of a vintage diner:@)

  3. Your coffee cake sounds delicious Kitty! I love your sweet vintage-y cherry mug and apron too! I was wondering if you were about to float away with all your rain. It's been a very wet weekend here but the sun is returning later this week. Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful and you're drying out. ♥

  4. You always set up the prettiest vignettes featuring your baking and tea cups...lovely! I do wish manufacturers would stop messing with amounts. Do they not realize that many recipes are affected by this?! I find it profoundly annoying and it takes a recipe from being easy to being not quite so. Course, your tip is an excellent one.

  5. Love the cherry apron. I just recently saw a cherry centerpiece that was so darling and I almost bought it and didn't. Now I wish I had. I love it that your deacon's bench has traveled with you. I bet the stories it could tell would be awesome to listen too. I bet your cherry coffee cake was so good. Kitty I hope that you had a wonderful Mother's Day. You are such a ray of sunshine. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
