Fresh Cherry Coffeecake

July 7, 2017Teresa

Fresh Cherry Coffeecake is absolutely awesome! This lovely coffeecake starts from my scrumptious Blueberry Coffeecake recipe, but instead of blueberries I used fresh cherries. I also have a peach version and a strawberry version that are some of our favorites and taste delightful as well.

This coffeecake uses sour cream in the batter to keep it moist. Two layers of fresh cherries are sprinkled with a brown sugar & cinnamon streusel and sandwiched between three layers of batter. After the cake is baked it’s drizzled with powdered sugar icing. It’s so incredibly amazing you won’t be able stop eating it once you start!

This delicious coffeecake can also be made and frozen if you desire. If you plan to use fresh cherries, you will only be able to make this cake between May and July before cherries are out of season. But you can probably use maraschino cherries or candied cherries (that have been rinsed and drained), if you want to try this delectable coffeecake any other time of the year.

If you’re looking for a fantastic way to use fresh cherries, Fresh Cherry Coffeecake should be on your menu. It’s perfect for holiday, company or family breakfasts. But’s it’s also terrific as a dessert.

Grease and flour a bundt pan very generously. Make sure every crevice is covered including the tube.

Spread one-third of the batter into the prepared bundt pan. Spread half of the cherries over top of the batter. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture over top of the cherries. Top with another third of the batter. Spread remaining cherries over batter. Sprinkle remaining brown-sugar cinnamon mixture over top of cherries. Finally top with remaining one-third batter. Bake at 350 for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours.

    I am making this yummy looking cake this morning but don’t plan to serve until the day after tomorrow. Recommendation for storing?

      Hi, Gail. I would leave it out on the counter for a day or so. Unless you are in a climate that’s very hot and you don’t have air conditioning. In that case, you may want to refrigerate it. Otherwise, You can leave this out on the counter for a couple of days before refrigerating it. I have also frozen this cake before (for several months). It was terrific served later, too.

    This is a great recipe. I used frozen cherries which produced a little juice when thawed. I used the juice in place of the mile in the drizzle. Wonderful!

      What a fabulous idea, Monica! I love the idea of a little cherry flavoring in the glaze. So glad you enjoyed the coffeecake.

      So glad you enjoyed it Lara. This is a terrific time to make this cake because cherries will only be available about another 3 or 4 weeks or so.

    This looks delicious, but I am puzzled by the list of ingredients. Could you proof and correct if there are mistakes, or explain how to use all of the ingredients listed. Thanks!
