Cherry Swirl Coffee Cake

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by stormylee

A lovely simple cake for cherry lovers, perfect with that cup of coffee! The recipe has been edited as a result of Shar-on's review; she's absolutely right, the pan originally called for was too small. The correct size is 24-25 cm, as stated now.

I made this coffee cake just yesterday.It was easy to put together. I baked it in my 8-9" round cake pan and it was too full. Next time I would try my bundt pan or my spring form pan with the centre insert. I had quiet a mess as it ran over the pan and the cake actually started to flop in the centre. (I should of known better than to fill it to the top.) I think baking it for 50 - 60 minutes was too long, it could use maybe 45 minutes, at least in my oven. It tasted really good and even with a little flop it is presentable to my guests. I will try this recipe again in different(just a little larger) pans and watch my baking time. Thanks for the recipe.
