It is delicious, but way too much sugar. It made so little batter that I didn't have enough for a 9x13 pan so I used a smaller one,so the next time I make it will use less sugar. It had the consistency of biscuit dough, so I am thinking that strawberries would be a good topping also.


Aside from making this in a slightly smaller pan, I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out okay for me. My family really loved it, but to me it tasted quite eggy (though the texture was correct). I will probably make it again, as it was pretty easy, and my family did enjoy it, but it's certainly not my favorite.


I made this with a jar of home-canned apple filling instead of canned cherries. I also substituted Mexican vanilla for the vanilla extract. It was very good...better than I had anticipated.
