Why a Bundt Pan?

The beauty of using a Bundt pan for this cake is not just in its aesthetics. The distinctive ring shape creates a stunning presentation that’s a feast for the eyes. Plus, the pan’s design allows for even heat distribution, ensuring a perfectly baked cake with a tender crumb and a golden crust.

Cherry Almond Coffee Cake Directions:

Dough

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.

Cherry Filling

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.

Dough Prep

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 prepared 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 bundt 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.
