Cherry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I love summer cherries, and they are wicked cheap at Haymarket, so I've been doing all sorts of things with them. I thought cherry coffee cake would be particularly appropriate for Independence Day, so I made this (picture will post later)

Made Cherry coffee cake this morning:

1 stick butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup sour cream

... 1 1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup almond flour (or just do 2 cups flour)

1tsp baking powder

1tsp baking soda

1 tbsp lemon zest

1 tsp almond extract 1/4 cup cherry preserves

1 1/2 cup pitted fresh cherries

cream butter and sugar, add eggs and rest of wet ingredients (except cherries and preserves)

sift and gradually add dry ingredients

Stir preserves in by hand and pour into baking pan

top with pitted cherries

Optional Crumb Topping

1 stick butter

3/4 cup flour

3/4 cup oatmeal

1 cup brown sugar

Cut butter into dry ingredients until pea sized crumbs, then sprinkle on top of coffee cake

bake at 350 for half an hour
