    This was quite good. I used a lite cherry filling and half the butter in the streusel topping. I doubled the pecans, but they were still pretty subtle. I think I would sprinkle them on top next time. The topping is a nice touch. Thanks!

    5 Stars, this was a perfect combination, comforting without being too sweet. DH will eat this for breakfast this week. I used Lucky's Premium Cherry Pie Filling. My streusel became a smooth spread, and I had to strategize to make it cover the entire cake; Kittencal thinks my butter may have been TOO soft, because streusel is usually somewhat lumpy and easy to sprinkle. Per Kittencal, the cake should cool 25-30 minutes before cutting. Note: I used Kittencal's Recipe #78579 #78579 to grease the pan, and the cake pulled away from the pan walls, making it easy to remove the cake from the pan. Thanks, Kit, for posting this recipe and for answering my questions on a timely basis. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

    This was such a wonderful cake! The cherries made it nice and moist and it tasted gorgeous. It's definitely made its way to my favourite top 10 cakes!

    Kitten, This is a beautiful cake. The cherry filling makes a delicious red ribbon through the moist cake. I added brown sugar and pecans to my streusel topping too! Perfect recipe. I chose this recipe from several other cherry cakes and of course as always with your recipes it was a success! Thank you for another wonderful recipe.

    This is a magnificent tasty cake and we simply adore it. I've made this using plain low-fat yogurt as a substitute for the sour cream. Very delicious and a keeper!
