Ingredients

Streusel Crumb Topping:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsalted butter

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup canola oil of oil of choice
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 & 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen sour cherries add 1 tablespoon flour/1 tablespoon sugar to coat cherries, if cherries are fresh, rinse and then coat in flour/sugar mixture before adding to cake

Vanilla Creme Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons almond milk or milk of choice or cherry juice for Cherry Creme Glaze.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9x9 baking pan with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray for easy removal. Set aside.
  • Streusel Crumb Topping:
  • In a medium bowl, using a pastry cutter, cut through the sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter until you get small, coarse crumbs. You can also use a food processor. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the eggs, oil, Greek yogurt, sugar, lemon juice: optional and mix together well with a whisk.
  • Add the flour, baking powder salt to the wet mixture and continue whisking until just combined.
  • Add 1 tablespoon flour/1 tablespoon sugar to coat cherries, if cherries are fresh, rinse and then coat in flour/sugar mixture before adding to cake).
  • Add to cake batter and fold in cherries about 3-4 times. Too much folding will over-mix cherries into batter.
  • Transfer cake batter to prepared baking pan and sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly on top of the cake.
  • Transfer to oven for 44-55 minutes, check for done-ness.
  • Glaze if desired. Mix together the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla and drizzle over cake after it's cooled.
  • Cake is awesome warmed up in the microwave for 20 seconds or so. Heavenly!
