This is my grandmother's recipe, and it was one of my favorite breakfast treats when I was growing up. Okay, so it still is! It's so easy, sweet, and delicious!


  1. Mix the first six ingredients together to make a batter.
  2. Pour most of the batter into the bottom of a greased 9x13-inch pan.
  3. Pour can of pie filling on top.
  4. Glop the rest of the batter on top of the filling.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!

This is a wonderful coffee cake. I made it for a breakfast potluck at work, and everyone loved it. The cake was sweet and tender and the cherry topping was very festive and attractive. I added a teaspoon of almond extract to the dough along with the vanilla and sprinkled slivered almonds over the cherry filling. I drizzled a powdered sugar/amaretto glaze over the top. Thanks for the great recipe, Kree!

I really enjoyed making this recipe. It was a snap, and I felt so happy with the end result. The dough was light and flavorful (I added almond extract) and I toasted some sliced almonds to sprinkle on top .I will make this often, and try different fruits. Cherry is hard to beat though!!

My husband is a dessert lover so I usually make a dessert once a week to keep him happy. I am so glad I found this recipe because he also loves cherries. This was so easy to put together and I wasn't covered in flour when I got through. Very moist and delicious. Thanks--Gladys
