In-Season Swap: Cherries

Cherries are my husband's favorites. He loves all types in all things. Kind of like me and blueberries. So, we have lots of recipes with cherries:

Cherry Apple Crisp
Berry Cherry Crisp
Cherry Cake
Trail Mix (with dried cherries)
Dark Chocolate Cherry Granola Bars
Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake
Cherry Ice Cream Sauce
Cherry Ice Cream
Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake
Crockpot Cherry Cobbler
Dark Chocolate Cherry Cobbler
Cherry Blueberry Pie
Dark Chocolate Cherry Muffins
Cherry Chocolate Bark

But, Frog Prince's favorite recipe is Cherry Coffee Cake! This recipe is perfect with fresh tart cherries made into your own pie filling....

Cherry Coffee Cake - Modified from the Sellnows

1/2 C butter (or, 1/4 C butter, 1/4 C applesauce)
3/4 C sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 C sour cream (fat free works just fine)
2 1/2 C (1 C of this can be whole wheat)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
16 oz cherry pie filling
1/4 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Cream together butter and sugar. Beat eggs and add sour cream to the eggs; stir well. Add this to the butter and sugar mixture and cream. Mix flour, salt and soda together and add to the dough mix. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl for topping.

Layer half of the dough in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Pour pie filling over the bottom dough layer. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar mix. Top with remaining dough. It works best to plop the dough over the cherries and carefully spread to fill in the holes. Top with remaining dough and sugar mixture. 

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
