  2. In another bowl, combine 1 3/4 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well to blend.
  3. Cream butter or margarine, sugar, and flavorings together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating for one minute with mixer on high speed after each addition. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with milk, starting and ending with flour mixture. Stir in floured fruits and nuts. Spread batter into greased and floured bundt or tube pan.

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.
