    I can almost taste it from the photo! Sounds yummy. At a quick glance at the title I thought it was “Bring . . . ” and that it was so good it was frequently requested. No doubt it is.

      This will be a big hit in the next quilt gettogether. Double the recipes. I think quilters like cherries as much as they like chocolate. Thanks for you comment.

    I almost picked up some cherries this week, but opted for a large container of blueberries. I may try this recipe with the blueberries! It sound delicious and will pick up cherries next time. Thank you for sharing your recipes. I enjoy reading and trying them.

      Yes you can use blue berries. You can also double the recipe for a 9 x13 pan to make more servings. I have taken this over the years to cover dish dinners and always have to take the recipe with me because I get asked for it. You can drain canned fruit also cut in small pieces in place of cherries. The basic recipe came from a fundraising cookbook from 1947 that my mother had from church. It was probably a depression recipe. Let me know what you thought after you make it.

    What I like about the heritage recipe is that it isn’t loaded with sugar. I can’t wait to give it a try.

      I used vegetable oil. What ever is on sale. This is a very old recipe and oil was understood to be vegetable oil. Thanks for your comment. I will edit.

    I sent you an email before about how much I enjoyed this recipe. I used cherries from my trees but what I did not say was because I had so many, I made a 9 x 13 pan. It took an hour to bake, but what a treat! I am not fond of overly sweet and this cake is perfectly balanced. The other thing that really like about it . . . I have a sour cream coffee cake recipe that is great, but 48 hours after it comes out it has already started to change. . . . this is a great cake and it is moist enough to hold its freshness for two – three days. (It may last longer but who would ever know)? Merci! I just found a new favorite. Like no-egg cake from the Depression era, simple and good/cheap and easy. Thanks.

      Thanks for your feed back. It is great cake and so easy to make. Cakes with fruit that are heavy with cream, yogurt and soft cheese does begin to lose it’s texture and flavor in a couple of days even if you put it in the refrigerator. I think it has something to do with interacting with the fruit.
