A favorite from my friend Betty, Betty Crocker that is:)

I enjoy bringing this to work! The surprise on my co-workers faces as they smell the aroma in the air... the almond extract and cherry and of course it is still warm when they eat it puts a smile on my face and in my heart!

Ingredients

CAKE

4 c
original bisquick mix
1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
butter, melted
1/2 c
milk
1 tsp
vanilla
1 tsp
almond extract ( i use 1/2 teasp. more)
3
eggs
1 can(s)
(21 oz.) cherry pie filling

GLAZE

1 c
powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 1 (15x10x1 inch) pan or 2 (9-inch) square pans with shortening or cooking spray.
2
In a large bowl, stir all coffee cake ingredients except the pie filling; beat vigorously with spoon for 30 seconds.
3
Spread about 2 1/2 cups of the batter in the prepared 15x10 pan or 1 1/4 cups in the 9 inch-pan . Spread pie filling over batter ( filling may not cover batter completely).

Note: I have made this in a "larger" 9x13 pan, it is an old pan and works well but it takes a bit longer to bake, but is soooo good! Of course you can cut it into as many servings as you wish...
4
Drop remaining batter by tablespoonfuls onto pie filling.
5
Bake 2o to 25 minutes or until light brown. Test with a toothpick.
6
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or cool.
