Cherry Coffee Cake and Crumb Topping

If you have a little more time and want a more unique coffee cake, this one may be just what you are looking for.

What you need:

  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 0.5 c. of melted butter
  • 0.5 c. milk
  • 0.75 c. sugar (if you want less sugar, you can use 0.5 c. instead)
  • 0.5 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 can of cherry pie flavor or filling of your choice

Make the cake by preheating your oven to 325 degrees and grease a 9 by 13 baking pan using shortening. Put your baking powder, sugar, salt, and flour and melted butter in a mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients together with a fork until they are crumbly.

If you notice bigger clumps, use your fingers to break them apart. Take half of the crumbs out of your bowl and if you want to add nuts, now is the time to do so.

In another bowl whisk together your lightly beaten eggs and your milk. Add this mixture to your bowl of crumbs and stir well. There are going to be small lumps left in the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread the cherry pie filling over the cake. Place the reserved crumb topping on top of the pie filling and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
