This was Mother-in-laws favorite dessert to make. I haven't found anyone who likes cherries who doesn't like this cake and doesn't ask for the recipe after trying it. It is very unusual compared to other cake recipes.
Reserve any remaining sauce in refrigerator for later use. The taste will NOT be the same when re-heated but will taste good anyway. ONLY re-heat as much as you need per serving.

When making cherry cake how do you prevent the cherries sinking to the bottom? I recently made a cherry cake and the recipe suggested folding the cherries in ground almonds before folding into the mixture. I did this, but the cherries still sunk to the bottom of the cake.
My mother & I used to make a cherry walnut chiffon cake & Mom taught me to toss the cherries in flour before folding into the batter. Just make sure you have lightly coated the entire surface of each cherry. That always worked for us so might be with a try. Good luck!
