Cherry Coffee Cake

I get asked to bring this to "Mom's" a lot. Some of you really like it and have asked for the recipe, it is:

Cherry Coffee Cake

1 yellow cake mix
1 cup flour
1 package yeast
2/3 cup warm water
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 can cherry pie filling (21 ounces)
1/3 cup cold butter

1 cup powdered sugar
1 T. corn syrup
1-2 T. water

In large bowl combine 1 1/2 cups dry cake mix, flour, yeast and water until smooth. Stir in eggs until blended. Transfer to a greased 9 x 13 pan. Carefully spoon pie filling over the top. Place remaining cake mix in a bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over coffee cake.

Confession: in a really hurry I've been known to skip the glaze. Although I'm sure it makes it better, no one has complained. Maybe they're just being nice though :-)
