Cherry Coffee Cake

I love farmer’s markets. I buy all my produce there because anything I buy at the store is just a disappointment after it. The food is always so flavorful, fresh and cheap! Yes…cheap! I got a big bag of cherries for just 2 dollars. Awesome!
We were eating those cherries for days and I wanted to make something special with the rest of them. This was so special, it was gone in two days! Hubby asked for a second slice after having the first one and came back with half of the pie. Hehe.

1 1/2 cups of chopped, pitted fresh cherries
