Cherry Almond Coffee Cake: I lovely not too sweet cake, with cherries, almond, and streusel topping. Made with sour cream to keep it lovely and moist.
I love the combination of cherries and almonds and this cherry almond coffee cake with it’s strudel topping and icing drizzle is so good!
This is the time of year, when there is nothing nicer than a little time to sit and enjoy the garden with a cup of tea or coffee and a lovely slice of cake. It’s also the time of year when you’re more likely to spend all your time in the garden weeding, planting, mulching, and digging.
I certainly have lots to do in my garden. But even though it’s not all done, even though there are weeds and things looking a little more wild than perfect, it’s still worth some of my time to sit back and enjoy it.
So yesterday afternoon, Maddie and I set up a little spot to enjoy an afternoon snack together, this lovely Cherry Almond Coffee Cake. It’s made with sour cream, which makes it lovely and moist. I love baking with Gay Lea’s Gold Premium Sour Cream, it’s so silky and decadent and adds a real richness to any baking.

This really is the perfect little break in your day, whether enjoyed in the garden or not. The cake is not too sweet with lovely plump tart cherries, almond, and the sweet crunch of the streusel topping. Yum.
With homemade Cherry Almond Coffee Cake, life really is a party!
