Gluten Free Cherry & Walnut Coffee Cake #Recipe

I love nuts and cherries. The other day when I stopped at my all time favorite store “World Market” I found tart cherries in a jar. They are my favorite. I was super excited, I had not found them since I left Germany and the jar was less than $3.00 each; what an awesome bargain.

Have you ever tried jarred cherries? They are amazing; all natural, packed in cherry juice and no added flavors or preservatives, you get what you see. I love to use them to bake goodies for the family or make dessert and since I had a few packs of Walnuts left in the cabinet from all the Christmas baking; I decided to give my Cherry Walnut Coffee Cake a try.

In Germany we love to use nuts for cookies and cakes instead of flour and this is one recipe that my grandma shared with me and it turned out amazing. I can’t believe how simple it was. So if you are gluten free or just have a few extra packs of Walnuts (you could use Pecans as well) around the house, this will be a treat for you.

This is what you need for the Gluten Free Cherry & Walnut Coffee Cake
