MainRecipesHoliday | Sour Cherry Almond Crunch Cake

   Sour Cherry Almond Crunch Cake submitted by Mom Johnson
This recipe works best with fresh sour cherries or with sour cherries packed in a can or jar.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Drain canned cherries in a strainer or colander, then spread out on paper towels to absorb more liquid.
Put flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Stir to mix well. Add the butter and cut in with a pastry blender and/or rub in with your fingers, until the mixture is in coarse crumbs.
Stir almond extract into the yogurt. Add to the flour mixture and stir with a fork just until the mixture clumps together to form a soft dough.
Spread the dough in a thin layer in an ungreased 8 inch square baking pan. Scatter the cherries evenly over the top.

Put the topping ingredients into a small bowl and work with your fingers until well-blended. The mixture will be lumpy. sprinkle the topping over the cherries. Bake until the cake is golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. Serve slightly warm but do not cover cake as the topping will lose it's "crunchiness". Makes 9 portions.
