This is soooo good. Yes 2 Tbsp. vanilla extract is correct.

I didn't rate this because I made some significant changes to the recipe. This is a nice idea, but each layer is so sugary it is overkill to me. I found that the flavors just didn't blend like they do in a black forest cake. However, I brought this to a german class and got positive feedback. So for those who could stand to OD on sugar, chocolate chips, and cherries, go for it, otherwise, skip dessert.
I am happy to be the first reviewer of this beautiful coffee cake. I made this for our church coffee hour. It sliced up nicely and looked great on a platter. It went very fast! I might try apple pie filling next time and omit the chocolate chips. Roxygirl update: 5/7 made the cake again using apple pie filling and adding tsp. cinnamon to the Bisquick topping. Served it for coffee hour. This was so scrumptious!!! I think this is the BEST coffee cake! I can tell I'll be making it a lot. Thanks Leeza!
I LOVED this coffee cake and I don't normally like fruit mixed with chocolate. It was so good! More like a rich cookie or a bar...which is fine with me because it's perfect for breakfast, dessert and a midnight snack!
