What a great recipe! I sprinkled chopped almonds on top instead of using walnuts. And to keep the cherries from sinking to the bottom, I coated them in a small amount of finely ground almonds. I also added chocolate chips, because as we all know, every dessert tastes better with chocolate. I'll definitely make again. All the kids loved it.

This is a very easy recipe. Instead of canned sour cherries, I used fresh pitted cherries. The cake is a little on the chewey side, so I'll continue to experiment. However overall this was a very easy, tasty recipe that was gone in one sitting.

Excellent, easy recipe. It was gobbled up by my family. Added some vanilla extract and didn't even need the sauce.
