I made these as muffins, and they were great! I followed other reviewers, and added salt, almond extract and almonds (to the topping). The almonds really bring out the cherry flavor. I did not have pie filling, so I used one cup of cherry preserves. I also subbed 1/4 cup of the fat as applesauce, and it worked very well. I baked the muffins at 375 convection for 22 minutes. The recipe yielded 12 large (and yummy) muffins. Love the topping!
This was a very nice, light cake, with great texture! I love cherries, so I made the recipe as is. I think I might add a wee bit of almond flavoring to the cherries and/or to the batter next time to help bring out the flavor of the cherries. Yum!! This was excellent and so versatile! Made for ZWT4 for the CAFE ZMAAK Gypsies!!

<p>I live in Saskatchewan where hospitality and food go hand in hand. Community suppers, Beef Pit Barbecues, Church suppers, potlucks, tea and bake sales, booths at the curling and hockey rinks in winter, the ball games in summer. What is truly the spirit of Saskatchewan is that these events are for most part the efforts of community volunteers sharing their time as well as their best make and takes. Small communities along with the larger centres across the province are well known for their turkey suppers, cabbage rolls, perogies and overflowing dessert tables. Homemade of course! <br /> <br />I love preparing meals for my family and friends and in the sharing of good recipes be they mine or that of another. My posted recipes are recipes that are family favorites. My reviews here on Zaar allow that I have been most fortunate in the choosing of the recipes I have made. Without doubt we all love those over the top desserts and dishes to serve on special occasions and for those fives are a given. For me equally important are the recipes used in the daily meal preparation. Recipes enjoyed by my family be it a simple soup, salad or casserole are right up there with the 'over the tops' and share equal billing. Yes five star ratings ... if my family enjoyed, I would serve to invited guests, take to a pot luck, coffee hour or bake sale. <br /></p> <p>Aside from cooking and baking I admit that my interest in gardening exceeds that of the norm. I collect cookbooks, my favorites being the community and church cookbooks that have everyone sharing their favorite recipes. Enjoy yard sales on occasion but tend to keep my hands in my pockets, cannot completely resist when it comes to the glassware, baskets and of course cookbooks. I take great pleasure in reading with non fiction being my first choice when it comes to the choosing.</p>
