Sweet Cherry Coffee Cake

When I'm expecting a group for breakfast or brunch, I like to get up early and enjoy a cup of coffee while I get this in the oven before the house gets full. The coffee cake goes together quickly, and then I can relax and work on the rest of the meal while this bakes. Everyone who has tried it loves it, it is nicely sweet without being dessert-like!
