Unbelieveably rich and moist; a must for those of us who love cherries. My SIL, who makes it for her husband's birthday every year, shared the recipe with me.

This is the exact recipe I have from a cookbook I received from mama when I married in 1975. It is so moist and has the best cherry flavor. My late Aunt Bessie used to make these or have them made every Christmas.
