Dried Cherry or Blueberry Coffee Cake…..

I really like making coffee cakes. There is so much you can do with them. Some coffee cakes have fruit, some have the crumbly sugary topping, some have the drizzled glaze. I like mine pretty simple. Both of the cakes here, are both my basic go to coffee cake recipe, but one has dried sour cherries, and the other has fresh blueberries. Both have a powdered sugar glaze. Both are very good. If you can’t find dried cherries, you may want to try dried cranberries. But I love the tartness of the dried cherries. So yummy.
