What a great idea for a sweet yeast cake! I took one to church yesterday, and I was glad I took a taste while I was cutting it up, because it was gone so fast! I skipped the glaze, though. It was already sweet enough.
I had clipped this recipe from Taste of Home several years ago, and just got around to making it today, to take to a brunch. It was great! One difference between that recipe and this one is that the TOH recipe called for one envelope of active dry yeast, which is actually less than 1 tblsp. I don't think it matters, though. I found it cooked fine in 30 min. in a Pyrex pan--but those cook a little quicker than metal sometimes. I pulsed the reserved cake mix and butter together in the food processor instead of cutting the butter in by hand. I think the cherry filling was delicious, but I bet it'd be great with blueberry or apple, too.
What a great recipe. I have never made a coffee cake, and wanted to take a special treat to some great people in another department/building, and I chose this one. This was super quick and easy to put together. I did have to cook it quite a bit longer. I think I used a smaller pan then stated. I used a disposable one so I wouldn't have to worry about my pan, and I think it was smaller. i will definately make this again, and I can't wait to try different pie fillings and maybe a cream cheese filling. Thank you for sharing this recipe
I found this same recipe in taste of home magazine. I made this for church and it was gone with in minutes. Everyone loved it. It is so easy to make and tastes great.
This was so easy to make, very moist and just delicious!, although it took over 30 minutes to bake in my oven, which is unusual for convection baking, I'm thinking becauce of the filling in the middle. The cake was sweet enough so I omitted the glaze! I will make this again, thanks Mel!...Kitten:)
