This cake turns out great. We baked this to use as our wedding cake. We did quarter the cherries instead of halving them though.

I have had this cake just about every Christmas for the last 25 years, while growing up and have made it myself for the last 10. It is excellent.

It had a great taste, but was VERY dry. More than likey, I did something wrong. I might try it one more time. Thanks for the post though!! :)

I used marichino cherries and cut in quarters. I have made it several times and it is always a hit. People have even asked me to make it for family gatherings.

Delicious! I substituted dried cherries for the candied cherries. I plumped them in hot water for 30 minutes or so before adding them. This cake is perfect, moist and lovely.
