I made this cake for the holidays it was very moist and delicious, I will be making it for the next year, it is a keeper !!!!
this is a auperb cake; so moist and yummy, I used pecans, just because thats all i had, and baked it in two loaf pans, so i could put one in the freezer for later.
Fantastic cake recipe Leeannr...I made this today with frozen, drained cherries that I had vacum-packed with sugar syrup in my freezer from last summer, instead of the maraschino cherries, and that worked very well, I also added 1/4 tsp almond extract...this cake had a very nice texture, very moist, and tasted excellent...I will try it with blueberries next time....another winner Leeannr! Thanks so much for posting...KC :-)
