Cherry Coffeecake

Coffeecake has always been a major weakness of mine. Pair it with some O.J. and you've got the perfect breakfast. Or, pour yourself a cold glass of milk with a slice after dinner and it's a satisfying dessert.

Cherry Coffeecake

1 egg
1 stick of margarine, softened
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking power
2 c. flour
2 21-ounce cans cherry pie filling

1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 stick of margarine, softened
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place egg in measuring cup and add enough milk to make one cup. Mix dry ingredients with margarine, then mix all with milk mixture. Pour into 9-by-13 inch pan. On top of batter, pour cherry pie filling. For topping, mix flour, sugar and margarine until crumbly. Add nuts, if desired. Spread crumbs over top of cherries and bake for 40 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or cold.
