Cherry Almond Coffee Cake

I love the combo of cherry and almonds and this coffee cake is loaded with those wonderful flavors.

Cherry Almond Coffee Cake Directions:

First, you need to create the dough.  It’s best to make the dough the night before. Start by heating the butter and milk over low on the stovetop until the butter has melted. Cool to lukewarm.  In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water and beat in the egg yolk. Blend in the cooled milk mixture. Sift in the flour, salt, and sugar. Beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy.  Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight.

Chopped up cherries

The next day, blend together cherries, almonds, and milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir on the stovetop until thickened. Remove from heat and cool.

Meanwhile, you’ll want to mix together egg whites and sugar. 

Stir into cooled cherry mixture.

Combining for the filling

Divide dough into two equal pieces and dust each with flour. Roll out (one at a time), you want the dough to be about 10-inches long.   Pour half of the cherry filling onto the dough and spread out over the dough.

Roll up jelly-roll fashion.

Rolling up the dough

Carefully place the first one into one side of a bundt pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Repeat with the second half and carefully place that half on the other side of the pan, overlapping the first half to create a circle in the pan.  Place on stovetop and let rise for 30 minutes while preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

After letting it rise, baking it up in the oven and you’ll have a delicious breakfast treat your family will love!
