Mom's Cherry Cake

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by lababb

This is a family favorite. Make sure you make it right before you want to eat it. It’s best fresh out of the oven. We like to eat it topped with vanilla ice cream. It's great with a cup of coffee.

This is a nice dessert if you like things really sweet. We are not big sweet eaters though, so if I make the cake again, I will have to play with the amount of sugar used in the recipe. I also found that a bit later the liquid separated, and left the bottom of the pan quite soupy. The recipe didn't say whether to drain the cherries or not, so I add the liquid in the first step. Recipe was made and reviewed for Spring PAC 2011
