I love this recipe because I make it the night before serving and pot it into the oven in the morning and go get ready for the day.
Recipe type: Breakfast cake
Serves: 15

  • 1 c butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1- 8 oz. carton sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1- 21 oz. can of pie filling-blueberry, cherry, peach, apple, etc.
  • Crumb Topping:
  • ¼ c flour
  • ¼ c sugar
  • ½ c chopped pecans
  • 3 T butter softened

  1. Cream butter, gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sour cream and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. Spread half of batter in a greased 13×9 baking dish. The batter is thick. Spread the pie filling on top of that and top with the remaining batter. It’s a little bit of a challenge.
  2. Sprinkle with crumb topping.
  3. Preheat oven to 375F and bake for 45 mins.
  4. Crumbs:
  5. Combine flour, sugar and pecans in butter until mixture resembles course meal.

It is a little bit of a challenge to spread this thick batter over top of the pie filling. Just do the best you can. You can see in the photo, below, that it isn’t perfect, but it comes out perfect.

If you want a healthier version, you can use whole wheat flour and it is just as good. Every time, I make this for my guests, and we get a lot of guests because of hosting teams, here, in Honduras, I get compliments. This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast Cherry Crumb Coffee Cake. Come on and try it, no really, you need to try it.

  10. That looks so yummy! Thanks for stopping by Fabulessly Frugal.

  11. Does this cake turn out very sweet? I ask because I like my desserts on the less sweet side. Would I be able to reduce the sugar and still be ok? Or does the sour cream compensate for the sugar?

    • The sweetness comes from the pie filling. Being a coffee cake, it’s not extreme.y, sweet. It’s hard to say what is too sweet for one person. The only thing that I can think of is try it this way and if it’s too sweet for you, reduce the sugar.
