“There's nothing like a little piece of sweet coffee cake to go with your coffee or tea in the morning! And this is a great one if you like cherries and almond flavor together. If you're like me, you can even go with 2 tsp almond extract and skip the vanilla. You can also use other pie fillings to change the taste, although cherry is my favorite. This comes from one of my favorite and most used cookbooks, The Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals.”
