Cherry Cake - Apparently for Two

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Diana 2

Great little loaves to have handy in the freezer for when unexpected, or expected company arrives. This is from the Company's Coming - Cooking for Two cookbook. It's moist, tasty, and very easy to prepare. They say it makes one small 7 x 7 cake, but I baked it in two mini loaf pans for 40 - 45 minutes. Freezes well too. I also tried substituting 1 for 1, whole wheat flour for the all purpose. Not a good idea ;)

We enjoyed this recipe! I tripled the recipe and made the recipe into cupcakes. I to used Maraschino cherries. The cup cakes were a big hit. Thanks for posting Diana! Made for the Think Pink tag game.
