Glazed Cherry Coffee Cake

This cherry coffee cake all started with some cravings. I get these cravings for cherry pie filling that don’t get satisfied unless I either bake something with cherry pie filling or just open up a can and shove a spoon in it and call it a day.  These little spurts of cherry pie filling insanity reminded me of an episode of the show “Rhoda”, a spin-off of the Mary Tyler Moore show.

In one episode Rhoda wanted chocolate so bad she took frozen brownies out of the freezer and started hacking at them with a butcher knife.  Rhoda became my hero, after that episode I always kept a frozen Sara Lee Cheesecake in the freezer and a butcher knife nearby.

Glazed Cherry Coffee Cake is so easy to make thanks to the cake mix that I decided I could wait the 25 minutes for it to bake.

This delicious cake is baked in a greased and floured jelly roll pan. Jelly roll pans are just a smaller version of a cookie sheet.  They’re usually 12×17 inches in width and length and one inch deep.

Since we’re using a cake mix and canned cherry pie filling there are only three ingredients that you actually have to measure out for the cake portion of the recipe.

 Cherry Coffee Cake ingredients :

  •  1 cup sour cream
  •  1/4 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 yellow or white boxed cake mix (15.25 ounce)
  • 1 can cherry pie filling (21 ounces)

Place the cake ingredients into a large bowl and beat until smooth.  Add the dry cake mix to the bowl and beat just until moistened, the batter will be lumpy.  Pour the batter into the jelly roll pan and spread it out evenly to fit the pan. Drop the cherry pie filling by large spoonfuls onto the cake batter. Bake for 25 minutes or until it tests done with a toothpick.

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/4  Teaspoon vegetable oil

Place the Glaze ingredients into a medium bowl and whisk together until smooth. You can whisk in a little more milk, a Tablespoon at a time to achieve the drizzling consistency you want if you like.  If you accidentally overdo it with the milk, add a little more confectioners sugar to the bowl and whisk to firm it up. Drizzle the glaze over the warm cake. Garnish with sliced almonds if you like, the nuts are totally optional but almonds are wonderful with cherries.

OH YES!  This definitely hit the spot!  It was moist, soft and full of cherry flavor.  The powdered sugar glaze and almonds were literally the icing on the cake to round this up to perfect!  This little beauty can be made with different pie filling flavors to satisfy your Rhoda moment. Enjoy!
