Patsy owned these 2 pans forever and loves this coffee cake. When she started giving her stuff away she asked me what I wanted. I asked for these pans. And sure enough she was right. This recipe makes an amazing breakfast cake. I could eat the batter right out of the mixing bowl.
You will need two 9"x2" cake pans.
3/4 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 t. almond extract
3 cups flour
1-1/2 t. baking soda
1 8oz container sour cream
1 can (21 oz) cherry fruit filling
Streusel Topping (below)
PAM cooking spray
Combine 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 t. cinnamon. Cut in 1/4 cup butter until crumbly
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray two 9" round cake pans with Pam.
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs until mixture is very light and fluffy. Add extract. Combine floured soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Divide batter evenly in pans, spreading cherry Fruit Filling on top. Sprinkle streusel topping over cherry filling.
Bake 25-30 minutes until cake tests done.
