I had to purchase a new pan because I had scratched the heck out of my old one by using the wrong scrub sponge. It was one of those regretful, silly mistakes. But hey, something positive came from my stupidity, this awesome recipe.

The pie filling adds a perfect balance of sweetness and fruitiness to the dessert, but the best part is the cinnamon brown sugar streusel on top. This coffee cake is made up of layers upon layers of different and wonderful flavors and textures. You have the soft, spongy cake layer on the bottom, followed by a sweet fruit jam in between, and finished off with a crunchy, almond oat streusel topping.

A delicious buttery coffee cake topped with sweet fruit pie filling and a crunchy cinnamon brown sugar almond & oat streusel.To make my own stamp on the original recipe, I made a few modifications. To save some calories, I decided to substitute half a cup of butter with half a cup of Greek yogurt because I thought 4 eggs and one cup of butter was a little too rich. I also reduced the amount of sugar because I knew pie filling would be plenty sweet. I used sliced almonds instead of pecans in the streusel because I thought the shape and texture would match the old fashioned oats better. And finally, the original recipe is a cherry streusel coffee cake, but I’m not a fan of cherry pie filling so I used strawberry instead.

Please note this recipe is for a 9×9 inch square pan and my cake rose right to the top while it was baking, so if you’re using an 8×8 inch pan, remove about 1 cup of batter and 1/2 a cup of pie filling so it doesn’t overflow.
