Cherry Coffee Cake

Brunch Recipes | 0 comments

This is a great coffeecake, very attractive and it tastes great too. For variety, you can use your choice of pie filling in place of cherry pie filling, e.g. blueberry or apple. You may want to use vanilla extract in place of almond with other pie fillings.
