What a delicious recipe! I could not find the dried glazed cherries at my local Kroger, so substituted two cups of maraschino cherries (without the liquid). It turned the batter a lovely pink. I frosted it with Martha Stewart's Grand Marnier Italian Buttercream Frosting and it was the best cake I have ever made. Highly recommend!

This is more like muffins than cake. Makes a very thick batter and a really heavy cake. I assume that the "almonds" ingredient is meant to be almond extract, but even with all three extracts, it's pretty bland.

Delicious and easy to make!! I used some frozen sour pie cherries that I had in the freezer and I frosted it with a buttercream icing. It is now a household favorite!
