Tender and crumbly coffee cake with hints of sweet cherries and tart buttermilk. Coffee Cake is perfect for breakfast, snack, or a gift.
This time of the year the grocery stores are brimming with stone fruit and cherries are one of my favorites! Looking at through my archives I have noticed that I have a few cherry recipes. Earlier this week I shared a Cherry Limeade Mojitos. If you’re looking to keep cool, maybe you should try some Vanilla Cherry Shaved Ice. And, who says cherries are only for sweets? One of the best cherry dishes I’ve made was Grilled Skirt Steak with Roasted Cherries and Figs. Today I’m sharing a perfectly tender and crumbly Cherry Almond Buttermilk Coffee Cake. Like I said I love cherries.
The sign of a good coffee cake is crumble. I love a good crumble! The topping for this coffee cake is made of big crumbles and almonds. But, it’s not just about a crumbly topping but also a tender crumbly crumb. Have I said crumb enough yet?
I served this cake with mascarpone cream, but it would also be great with a dollop of clotted cream. This cake is perfect for your next tea party – because we all have tea parties – or breakfast. It also makes a great gift for a friend. The buttermilk guarantees a soft crumb and a tart flavor which is perfect with cherries and almonds. It’s kind of an amazing thing!
