Pie Filling Coffee Cake

You can use any kind of pie filling you prefer in this coffee cake. My mom always uses cherry, I use strawberry or apple. Please don't substitute other ingredients (i.e. wheat flour for white flour, etc.) because it will affect the taste. If you want to substitute please try it the way it is written first. Recipe originally from my mom. Number of servings is a guess.

Followed the directions exactly, using cherry pie filling. I made this to take to brunch at church. Everyone loved it and I had to share the recipe with many. Since it was so well received I am making it again. This time I will do one with cherry and one with lemon pie filling. I did not think the cake was bland at all, nor did I think it was too sweet. And it was very simple to put together. I make it on Saturday for church on Sunday and it tastes great the next day.

It certainly turned out pretty. I made it with strawberry pie filling. The cake base was pretty bland, maybe it would be better with some vanilla? My pie filling was basic, nothing to mention about that. My topping wasn't bad, but I ran out of sugar. I used 1/4C granulated and 3/4C powdered. It turned out fine. Overall, the cake only gets two stars. I can't get over how bland and tasteless the cake base is. I'm sure some tweaking would improve the recipe, but I only tried this to use an old can of pie filling. I won't be attempting this recipe again.

This is a good cake, I disagree that it is too sweet, I used apple pie filling, but if I were to make again I would include some cinnamon in the cake batter, as well as in the crumble topping. With those two additions, I think it would make a good cake, great!
