This was really good and easy to make. I really love the candied cherries and increased it to one full cup in this recipe. I also did the same for the raisins as well, which made for a much more filling cake. I gave this to one of my friends who gave me a small piece because she was on a diet and didn't want the whole cake, so I was abble to try a piece. I really enjoyed it and so did she.
