    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    This is a great yeast coffeecake that I like to make during cherry season. Sometimes I use sweet cherries in place of the sour ones, depending on what's available at the time. Original recipe by Beth Hensperger. NOTES: 1. do not preheat oven, 2. times do not include time to make dough in bread machine, since bread machines vary (my dough cycle takes 1 hour 30 minutes), 3. cooking time includes cooling time

    3. 3
      Place all ingredients for dough in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Program for dough cycle and start.
    4. 4
      Just before dough is complete, grease a 9-inch square baking pan or a 10-inch pie plate.
    5. 5

      Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for about 20 minutes. Serve warm.
    9. 9
      MORE NOTES: this coffeecake freezes well. Place in refrigerator overnight or on countertop, unwrapped. Reheat for 12 minutes in a 300 degree F oven.

      Really loved the topping but did not care for the bread on the bottom. There was too much bread on the bottom. Maybe I should have used a large pan ... I would like to make this as a pizza.

      This was awesome! Not a good choice to make for breakfast because it takes about 2.5 hrs and I'm not a happy early riser on the weekends. I used frozen fresh cherries from our backyard tree and should have dried them better because the top was mushy. It firmed up better when cold. The flavor was super. I loved it! Made for ZWT9.

      This was very good. Different than my usual batter based coffee cakes. I liked the flavor of the sour cream layer. The only problem for me was that the sour cream made the top appear a bit doughy, but I feel as if I cooked it longer the dough would have gotten dry and ovecooked. I used fresh cherries. I'll definitely try it again. Thanks for the recipe.
