Cake mix
Icing drizzle
  1. Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit
  2. Spray 15 x 10 x 1 pan. I then put parchment paper on the bottom and then spray the parchment paper. Totally optional!
  3. Mix cake mix, vegetable oil, water vanilla and eggs. You can either use a hand mixer or give it a really good stir.
  4. Set aside about 3/4 cup of cake dough
  5. Spread the rest of the cake dough on the pan. It is a thin layer.
  6. I have started gently mushing the cherries. My kids have found the odd pit in the canned cherries.
  7. Gently spread the cherry filling over the dough layer
  8. Using a tablespoon, drop the dough you’ve set aside onto the cherry filling
  9. Gently spread your ‘dough drops’.
  10. There should be gaps so you can see the cherry filling.
  11. Bake 25-30 minutes. Check with toothpick for doneness.
  12. Cool for about 1 hour
  13. Mix powdered sugar, 3 tsp milk and vanilla. Drizzle on the cherry coffee cake.
  14. I cut this into 24 good sized pieces.
