Family loved it. I posted up a photo as well. But I did one thing different. Instead of making a Cherry cake, I made a Strawberry cake. I know that goes against the whole point of the cake but I was willing to try out the exact same ingredients but replacing the amount of Cherries with the exact same amount of Strawberries. And it came out just as fine. Actually it came out great. Everyone in the house loved it and I am willing to make it again. - 30 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent recipe! I did make some minor changes by using butter instead of shortening, pecans instead of walnuts, and omitted the food coloring. My husband couldn't stop eating it. Thanks for sharing! - 21 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Pretty good. I baked the cake in 8-inch pan (3 inches deep) and it turned out not very tall, so I suspect that it would have made a VERY flat 9-inch square cake. I wish the recipe specified the weight of cherries rather than the volume. I used an entire 16-oz package of frozen cherries, which measured one and a half cups after halving and thawing; seems like a lot of cherries since that package of frozen cherries measures almost three cups when frozen. I might make this again. - 23 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
