1 1/2 cups
cherries, pitted and halved
I really loved this recipe! However, I did make a few simple changes. I added about 2 cups of cherries and baked the cake in an 8x8 glass dish which had to be greased and floured. The cake was beautiful~it was moist and had a slight crunch to the outside. I mixed up a little milk and confectioners' sugar to make a quick glaze to pour over the top for additional sweetness! The cake disappeared~we will make this cake again! Thank you for the recipe!!
I have a difficult time baking things without adding chocolate to them, and this one was no exception. In doing so, I confirmed that I don't like the combination of cinnamon and chocolate. So, the second time I made the recipe I made the following changes: 1. Removed all cinnamon 2. Added half cup semi-sweet choc chips 3. Reduced vanilla to half teaspoon 4. Added half teaspoon almond extract I also used frozen cherries instead of fresh (cut them in half and added them frozen to the batter). I think this turned out better than the original recipe (though I imagine fresh cherries would be better). Next time I may try with milk chocolate chips/chunks.
A very moist coffe cake bursting with fresh cherries! I used 2 cups like most of the others suggested. Instead of oil I used 1/2 c. Land O lakes light butter that I creamed together with the 1 c. of white sugar until light and fluffy. Then I added each egg one at a time to that mixture followed by the vanilla, and milk and an addition of 1/2 tsp. of almond extract. I baked mine in a prepared 8x8 glass baking dish (used Pam for baking) and baked it at 350 for 55 minutes. I topped it with a glaze made from 1 c. of confectioners sugar and 2 Tbsp. of milk. Next time I might top this with sliced almonds - it's a keeper for cherry season.
Great recipe! I actually made muffins out of the batter instead of making the whole cake. They were a hit...YUM!
I really enjoyed this coffee cake. I did make it fat free by using applesauce instead of the oil. I also used egg substitute and it came out almost like a bread pudding consistancy. Not a whole lot of cherry flavor, maybe next time I'll use some cherry extract instead of the vanilla. All in all, I'll make this again since the ingredients are readily in my pantry. Thank you.
I'm probably going to write a novel here, so please bear with me. I made quite a few changes to the recipe. You might want to say I "healthed it up". I used white whole wheat flour, which is a somewhat obscure kind of flour but it is wholegrain without feeling like you're eating a brick. I also used granulated brown sugar and decreased it to 2/3 cup, but the cake was still sweet enough. I replaced the oil completely with unsweetened applesauce. I used only 1 very large egg, and used ricemilk for the milk. Ended up also sprinkling 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts over the top of the batter before baking, which was really the bottom once I turned the cake out because I used a bundt pan. I kept the cherries at 1 1/2 cups. If you want a cake WITH cherries, follow the recipe guidelines. If you want a cake OF cherries, add more. This was SO moist and flavorful. I might add a streusel topping next time I make it. thanks!
Awesome moist, cinnamony, cherry coffee cake. Simple to make. Would highly recommend!
I also increased the cherries to two cups and it turned out great. It was a delicious way to use up cherries from our local farmers market. We will definitely make this again.
