    Crafty Lady 13's Note:

    Brown sugar, butter and cinnamon melt into sweet cherries baked under a fine-crumbled, tender sour cream butter cake. You can use dark red cherries, golden Ranier or Royal Anns, or a mixture. This is especially delicious when warm.

    2. 2
      Whisk flour, nutmeg, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter and almond extract in large bowl at medium speed until smooth. Gradually beat in sugar, increase speed to medium-high; beat 4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
    3. 3
      Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. At low speed, beat in flour mixture in 3 parts alternately with sour cream just until smooth, beginning and ending with flour mixture. (Batter will be thick.) Spoon and gently spread batter over cherries.

      This just came out of the oven and mmmmmm so yummy. As another review said, this is a great way to use up fresh cherries without making pie. I love pie, but after 2 pies and cherry ice cream, I wanted a change. This fit the bill perfectly. I did omit the whipped topping, as I'm not fond of the stuff, but otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks. This is a definite keeper!

      This was really really good! A great way to use up some fresh cherries and do something besides pie.
